Review/Notes: I got to pick my dog up from the emergency vet this morning where she had been spending a not inexpensive weekend. At 17 years old things that are rather more routine for our younger dog require quite a bit more work. So that whole experience contributed to my general level of exhaustion over the weekend. Happily we have plenty of wine. Last night was a zin, tonight we opened this rioja.
This one was a bit abrupt right out of the bottle as well but softened up nicely. It’s got a bit of fruitiness to it but not too sweet. I would describe it as a bit edgy. My allergies are insane right now so I’m probably missing out on some of the subtle nuance but I’m still enjoying it quite a bit.
