A friend and I had one of the best riojas I've ever had last week. It's $29 for the bottle (so, of course we had two). It's the Osoti Rioja 2001. Absolutely yummy.
We didn't eat there but did get a tour of their kitchen-very cool. No oven in sight. If raw food is your thing, you'll be over the moon. Just make sure you try that wine!
