Ibericos Crianza Rioza 210414

Oakey Tempranillo from Miguel Torres who produce consistently acceptable quality wines.

Not as big a Rioja bang as I’d expected.  Apparently, this is their first Rioja – with Torres notes here.

So perhaps a little more to do to bring it up to Torres benchmark.

Good article from the Independent Wine Review on the 2010 vintage here
