Campo Viejo Reserva 2004
Name: Campo Viejo Reserva
Price: €12 (approx)
Notes: This wine is generally a go-to wine. If this is the only familiar wine available, it's a safe bet, a solid oaky Rioja for reasonable money. We were a little disappointed with this bottle however. It tasted a little thin and anaemic, with no great amount of flavour. Perhaps because I didn't decant it, as I have been doing of late or perhaps because we have been drinking lots of this (superb) of late, I don't know.
Rating: 5/10. - Was going to be 4/10 but gets the extra point for being better than this on previous occasions.
