image Ever had a Rioja that jumped up to lick your face?

Rioja spain wine

Such a happy nose this 2012 Rioja has ― fruity, friendly, practically jumps out of the glass to lick your face. Abundance of dark fruit, berries and oak, strawberry compote with a nice trail of spice. And on the palate, smooth with nice bright acidity. Paired so well with the chorizo stuffed with dates that I was tempted to order a second plate ― and by “plate”, I mean bottle.
