Burgo Viejo Tinto Rioja 2012

Rioja seems to be a thing for me at the moment.  Few miss the mark in terms of quality and they seem leanly priced.  This wine from Burgo Viejo is a blend of 85% tempranillo 10% garnacha and 5% mazuelo.  It has aromatics of blueberry, earth and juicy blackberries.  These aromatics carry through to the palate, with the addition of some fleshy texture and plum characters.  This is a very drinkable wine indeed, and is balanced with a medium length finish.  The bottle disappeared quickly from the table.
