Lopez de Haro Reserva Rioja, 2009

Lopez de Haro Reserva Rioja, 2009

Sensational value.  The bottle was gone before I even got a picture in! We tried their rather simple white, which was wonderful, a few days ago; ditto this red, wundebahr.  It doesn’t have the great depth and nuance of the 90 plus pointers but at the price point it is ALL VALUE and NO DOWNSIDE.  You will taste everything that a better, more classic Rioja has to offer, the oak (not too much), the sweetish berries, the not too powerful tannins, but unfortunately in less intensity, and somewhat fleeting.  Who cares? At the price, I mean how satisfying can it get at $20?

 

Price: $19.99 at the Broadway International Wine Shop.

 

Market Liquidity: Honestly, if only I could find a car this reliable.
