One of the delightful peculiarities of Rioja, Spain’s premier winegrowing region, is its penchant for releasing its reds on a greatly staggered schedule. Some are offered in the year or two following harvest, while others mature in the cellars for a decade or more before going on the market. Whether you like your wines fruity and vigorous or elegant and savory, Rioja has something for you. Here are nine newly-released red Riojas, ranging from 2016 back to 2010.
