I visited Rioja last year, and having looked through my notes had a lot of things to write down in a legible format – this comes from that. I’m not saying it’s definitive (it isn’t) I’m not saying anything about it in fact – except here it is – and take from it what you will.
Things to bear in mind are that not all the wines tasted were tasted under the same circumstances, and there is every possibility that a wine that showed badly on the tasting was just showing badly.
Have a look and feel free to comment.
