The recent Camp Viejo releases are actually pretty good, the style getting a welcome polish. But this Campo Viejo Rioja Reserva 2014 is lack a bad flashback. Rustic, ferrous and raw with acidity and drying oak tannins the only thing to hang on to. Old fashioned Rioja and outdated only lifted up by ok length. Best drinking: It will live and likely get better for years. But the balance may never improve. 15.8/20, 85/100. 13.5%, $19.99. Would I buy it? No.
