I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

2004 Bodegas Roda Rioja Cirsion

  • 2004 Bodegas Roda Rioja Cirsion – Spain, La Rioja, Rioja (4/25/2006)
    Blackish purple in color. The nose has a jammy black raspberry quality with smoke, vanilla, and cherry flavors. Big drying tannins in the mouth that seem to take away from any fruit that is there. Spicey though hollow on the finish. Maybe needs to open, maybe is lacking in fruit. Too early to tell.
