Shop for Wines from Rioja

A famed wine lover once referred to Rioja as "the Bordeaux of Spain," because Rioja wine is complex, traditional, and can range from quaffable, everyday values to elegant, long-lived collectors' bottles.

Wines from Spain are becoming increasingly more recognized for their high quality and excellent pricing. From Rioja, the Crianzas and un-aged reds reflect medium body and softer fruit, while Reserva and Grand Reservas (through the use of longer oak aging) are considered fine wine.

Rioja is one of the oldest wine-growing appellations in Spain, and is particularly noted for Tempranillo, though Graciano and Garnacha may also be used.

    WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 6/1/2016
    Earthy, ripe cherry and berry aromas come with notes of baking spices and tobacco. This is crisp in feel, albeit a touch jagged. Smoky, toasty plum and cherry flavors lead, while this is long, spicy and a tad bit hot on the finish.
    VN8787 pts. - Vinous - Sep 2014
    Brilliant ruby. Dried cherry, tobacco and succulent herbs on the fragrant nose. A sweet vanilla quality accents lively red fruit flavors on the open-knit palate. Comes up a little short on the finish, which is framed by gentle tannins.

  7. Izadi Reserva

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#85149

    JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, January 14, 2021
    Sweet berries and walnuts with dried flowers and blueberries on the nose. Full-bodied with very tight, refined tannins that are focused and impressive. I like the texture and definition to the wine, as well as the complex aftertaste. Serious wine that’s nice to drink now, but with three to four years of age, this will be very special. Try after 2022.
    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
    In the 2016 Reserva, I found very good freshness and balance and notes of red fruit that always point at more contained ripeness, and it also has a completely different oak profile, a lot subtler and more integrated than in previous vintages. This is a clean and aromatic modern Reserva with some fine tannins to be resolved by some more time in the bottle and/or with hearty food. It’s a blend of 89% Tempranillo and 11% Graciano matured in barrel for 15 months. 148,217 bottles and 1,000 magnums produced. It was bottled in July 2018.

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#72872

    JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, July 26, 2019
    A fruity and delicious red with blackberry and cherry character. Medium body. Firm tannins. Drink now and enjoy.
    VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2019
    Deep ruby. Ripe dark berries, licorice and a hint of vanilla on the fragrant nose, along with a subtle floral topnote. Sweet and broad on the palate, offering plush blackberry and cherry flavors that are given spine by juicy acidity. Rich and open-knit, delivering solid closing thrust, slow-building, harmonious tannins and very good, dark-fruit-dominated persistence.
    SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Aug 31, 2020
    A thick texture carries savory flavors of black olive, dried herb and loamy earth in this big red. Cola and licorice notes wreathe a core of plum and currant. Solid. Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano. Drink now through 2032. 250,000 cases made, 80,000 cases imported.

    Reserva
    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#87342

    JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, November 2, 2020
    Aromas of subtle red fruit with plums, spice and cedar. Some dried flowers and dried spices, such as paprika. It’s medium-bodied with some pretty, ripe fruit in the center palate, fine tannins and a citrus and cedar undertone to the finish. Drink or hold.
    RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
    The classic Haro-styled red 2015 Viña Alberdi, sold abroad with the mention of Reserva and in Spain as Crianza, is a good introduction to the house style: balsamic reds with abundant notes of sweet spices and cigar ash, developed aromas of forest floor and a creamy twist making small concessions for a fresher and cleaner profile in the last few years but keeping the classic style. There are notes of ground tobacco and earth, and the palate is seamless and sleek, with polished tannins and a soft mouthfeel. There are 550,000 bottles of this wine, all produced from a single master blend. It was bottled in September 2018 after two years in American oak barrels.

    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2020
    The juicy and chewy unoaked red 2019 Señorío de P. Peciña Cosecha Tinto has bright ripe fruit and an earthy touch, a medium body and soft tannins that give it a supple texture.

    VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Jun 2020
    Vivid scarlet. Pungent red berry, blood orange and floral scents pick up a spicy topnote with air. Juicy and well-concentrated but lively as well, offering sappy strawberry, cherry and orange pith flavors and a touch of succulent herbs. Finishes long and smooth, with repeating florality and a gently sweet red fruit note.

  13. Montecillo Rioja Crianza

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#65708

    WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/1/2019
    Fresh berry and red plum aromas are lifted by complementary notes of oak grain and vanilla. This value-priced crianza from a very good year feels flush but primed by punchy acidity. Red plum, berry and a hint of wood spice make for a classic Rioja flavor profile, while this remains tasty and fresh on the finish.
    JS8888 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, July 26, 2019
    There’s a plush, ripe core of vibrant red fruit and tannins on offer here. The palate is mid-weight and elegant. Drink now.
