Faustino VII Cosecha 1995 Rioja ($6.99)
Clear ruby color. Good black-fruit and oaky vanillin aromas. Ripe, juicy fruit flavor, consistent with the nose, fresh and tart. On the light side for a Rioja, but perfectly balanced and refreshing, with the stuffing to last a few years in the bottle. Excellent value. Importer: Palm Bay Imports Inc., Boca Raton, Fla. (June 29, 1997)

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
