Let me just say this… the cost of this wine is ridiculous when compared to the quality. Not like this is a new thing--we sell more bottles of Senor de Lesmos Crianza than any other Spanish wine at K&L. We, the staff, have loved this wine for years, singing its praises as one of the best values in Rioja you’ll find anywhere. I was super-excited to taste the 2017 when I saw it come in this morning. What strikes me in particular about this vintage is the way that the fruit, savory undertones, and smokey oak all transform into this pretty expression for Rioja. Almost like there’s elements of cherry, sandalwood, and charcuterie all blending together. On the palate, these flavors continue, maybe getting a touch more leather, with soft tannins, bright fruitiness, and a great finish. There’s no reason that this bottle should be this good at this price.
