Bodegas Francos-Espanolas Rioja Bordon Reserva 2008 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Spicy currant and aromatic, woody balsamic notes on the bouquet

Medium bodied on the palate

Red fruit, dry earth, and moderately tannic on the finish


This is a nice wine. It's a bit more woody than a typical Rioja from Spain, but with that said Rioja is a region that is showing a variety of styles emerge beyond the classic profile of soft red fruit. It should compliment a variety of dishes, particularly barbecue. Expect to pay in the mid-teens- the average price I've seen is $16. Raise a glass!
