Bodegas Abanico "Hazaña Viñas Viejas" 2014 Rioja Red Wine, $9.99-$15.99, 87+ points, poured mostly red, tinted with purple, a bit of orange at the clear wine ring, and a tad unfiltered appearance with heavy draping on the glass bowl.
The nose was an interesting medley of red and black fruit with a floral vibe.
Medium-bodied with good acidity, unobtrusive tannins, and friendly flavors reflective of the aromas furnished a red-table wine with manners.
Finished well on red fruit notes, a smidgeon of white pepper, tobacco, and a European sense of alcohol (13%) proportionality.
Varietals were 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano.
Paired fine with 'meat-lovers' pizza.
