Sierra Cantabria 1990 Rioja Reserva ($10.99)
Very dark ruby color. Vanilla, black fruit and a whiff of mint in the aroma; full, ripe and juicy fruit flavor, surprisingly youthful, with oaky vanillins and lemon-squirt acidity playing counterpoint to the fruit. A bit light and bright for a traditional Rioja, but it's still appealing, particularly with a good food match. Importer: Cutting Edge Selections Inc., Cincinnati. (Sept. 21, 1997)
Montecillo 1993 Vina Cumbrero Rioja ($8.99)
