Two wines from Heredad Ugarte

2007 Ugarte Cosecha, Rioja - Pretty, Pinot-like nose of cherry, vanilla and a smoky/hickory note. tart cherry flavors with tangy acidity and light to moderate tannins. Very drinkable and very reasonably priced around $10. Mostly Tempranillo with a bit of Grenache.

2009 Eguren Reinares Viura, Castilla - Pale, nearly imperceptable color. Pretty, Viognier-like nose of flower, peach and a distinct yeasty nose. A bit thin on the palate, but very flavorful.
