    Great post!

    Remember, y'all: "Reserva" or "Denominación de Origen Calificada" (D.O.C. / Qualified designation of origin) on a rioja label means it's better in the opinion of the vintner than the standard fare, so always choose "Reserva", "Gran Reserva" or "DOC" when possible.

    Also, with riojas, choose "Rioja Alta" over any other Rioja region - again, the wines are generally better that the lower slopes ;) though the Alavesa region has nicely full-bodied and complex riojas, too.

    If in doubt:

    Regions: Rioja Alavesa, Rioja Alta and Rioja Baja
    SEE: http://www.wine-searcher.com/regions-rioja+alavesa / http://www.wine-searcher.com/regions-rioja+alta / http://www.wine-searcher.com/regions-rioja+baja

    Rioja towns to look for on labels:
    - Haro
    - Logrono (w/ tilde)
    - Estella
    - Miranda de Ebro

    Some of the best know producers are:
    - La Rioja Alta
    - Muga
    - Marques de Murrieta
    - Marques de Caceres.

    Rats - forgot to mention that a Rioja is a young-drinking wine: Nooo I don't mean the young should drink it [wasted on their untrained tastebuds ;)] but rather a Rioja is not a wine to keep for years & years laid down in yr [hehehe as if] cellar like French Bordeaux... Rioja's prime years are between 5 and 10 yrs old and sometimes up to 12; very very rarely after 15 yrs and certainly not past 18 yrs
