A Tremendous Steal Of A Price On A Smooth Drinking Rioja
†Bodegas Faustino has been turning out great Rioja for 150 years, and the 2011 Faustino VII Rioja is a real crowd pleaser with plenty of red fruits, tobacco, spice, and vanilla. †A good Rioja is always a great QPR choice, and especially when itís just $7.99 per bottle.
The 2011 Faustino VII is made from 100% Tempranillo and aged in American oak for ten months before being bottled.

Nice ripe cherries, some dried berries, tobacco, spice, and a little vanilla. Medium-bodied Rioja with good structure and red fruits lingering on the finish. A great everyday red for $7.99!
