Rioja is the most recognized Spanish wine region, but the Rioja in this selection is a little unusual. The rest of the wines in the weekend tasting hail from lesser known regions but have classic flavor profiles. The Txakolina taste like a cross between a Vinho Verde and a Sancerre, the Ribera del Duero tastes like a spicier and more leathery Cabernet Sauvignon, and the Ribeira Sacra like a spicy, full-bodied, yet elegant Pinot Noir.
