No frills but also no shrills. This is basic Tempranillo in fine form; it smells like ripe berries and rubber, while the palate is deep and full of plum, blackberry, chocolate and vanilla. It's a warm, fairly rich wine that's not the least bit complicated. For those faithful to Rioja, it will do the trick.
