"A terrific value from Rioja, the 2010 Dioro was aged in French oak for 12-14 months. It displays a deep ruby/purple color along with a big, sweet kiss of anise, blackberries, blackcurrants and a hint of lead pencil shavings as well as a deep, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel. This luscious, opulent Rioja is from the more modern school of winemaking, delivering plenty of flavor depth and character. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years. - Robert Parker"
