Somerfields/Co-Op have a 2004 Reserva Rioja for only £2.99, this is a bargain, they are normally twice this price.
It is called ALMENA REAL. I tried a bottle last night for research purposes! I drink a lot of Rioja, and for the money this is very drinkable. Not as smooth as some, but you are talking paying £8 to £10, but for every day drinking, very pleasant indeed.

"Reserva" really just means regulated by law. It's not even that strong a regulation - they just make sure they don't artificially age the wine or cheat the alcohol measurements - nothing like as strong or meaningful as AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée) in France.

Don't buy wine just because the vinyard took the time to fill some forms in and certainly don't bulk-buy before trying some for yourself.

Sorry, that's incorrect. A wine which says 'reserva' on the bottle has been aged for two years; one of these years has to have been spent in oak.

Maybe you're confusing it with 'denominacion de origen' which governs the quality of the wine - to a point....

Well while we're picking at each other, reserva is actually 3 years, 1 of those in oak.

My point was it's just a checklist item, as meaningless as using megahertz as the sole descriptor for computer performance or the size of a car's exhaust pipe to show how fast it can go.

Touche..... Technically Reserva is either two (white) or three (red) years...

I wasn't picking. What you said was completely wrong. It's hardly a case of being pedantic is it?
