Glorioso Rioja Reserva 2009


Desperate for a last minute match for an impendingly delicious paella, I gave this Rioja a go from Liquorland (part of the Wesfarmers group).  It's ok.  "Reserva" means it's seen at least 36 months in bottle and oak, and in Rioja, with a minimum of 12 months in oak.  Aromatics of earth, chocolate, plum and blueberry are typical Rioja.  The palate is full bodied, but the length quite short.  A journeyman expression of this region's wares.  The paella was still delicious.  Acceptable
