"Super fresh and gently reductive young black cherry fruits, with a sappy edge, too. Give this some air. The palate has a smooth, deeply flavorsome style. Cassis and cherry fruits hold pure. Drink now."~J.S.

" Rayos Uva is Olivier's version of a Bourgongne Rouge sourced from fruit grown in the sandy, gravelly and alluvial soils of Rioja Baja. The blend is dependent on the vintage but usually includes Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano - percentages change each year to create a brightly fruity version of Rioja unmarked by oak. " ~ Winery notes

Wine Advocate 90
"The 2016 Rayos Uva feels very balanced and has good freshness, with some red fruit and hints of beef blood and iron. It has very good freshness for the region. In 2016, he used more Graciano, and the wine has less Garnacha (only 10%), which could explain the extra freshness of this bottling. This is bottled completely unoaked. 65,000 bottles produced."~L.G.

Rioja - I am a lover of Riojas and found this wine without the necessary character.

it's a nice wine - this is a nice wine - better the second day - maybe it needs to be decanted (not my normal way) - I would recommend it to a friend but ask for his opinion and initially only suggest he/she buy two bottles as I did and when I use the second maybe I will change this comment
