Wine Description

Back in 2012, Eric Asimov of the New York Times wrote a well received article on Rioja Reservas, stating the following, "it's accepted wisdom that most wine drinkers do not have the money, the storage space or the patience to wait years as their bottles age to maturity. Consumers expect wines to be ready, or at least enjoyable, immediately after they buy them." In an instant gratification world, it's a tough business decision for a winery to do all the work, keeping bottles and barrels in their cellars for 7-10 years before they are ready to drink...but that's exactly what La Rioja Alta does.
