Not quite sure what to expect but I am hoping it will be more than decent. Crossing fingers.





How was this DD?

Chard,
This was drinkable but clearly over the hill (and storage wasn't ideal with a saturated cork three quarters up) if using Bordeaux as a baseline since I have no experience with Spanish wines. The nose was more interesting with a little bit of fruit and flower garden than the taste which seemed tired.




Thanks, I have went through a few 06's as of late and they have been very nice but not a Rioja that comes across as needing (lasting) decades of cellar time.
