As a lover of traditional Burgundies and Piedmont wines, I don't subscribe the "this is the wine our grandfathers drank, we want to drink something new" quote. I'm quite skeptical about the so called "à la Parker" wines and not particularly fond of overwhatever --extracted, ripen, oaky, choose your evil-- wines.

Traditional Rioja wine encompasses way too much wine, most of it quite mediocre or hands down bad wine. This has nothing to do with the novelty of the wine or the winery having a more fashionable style.

That said, there are excellent traditional Rioja producers whose wines I love.

Thanks for some really great information. I visit a lot of restaurants for my work but is still difficult to get good opinions in certain regions and on certian recipes. Sarah M.
