This wine comes from Rioja in Northern Spain, which is best known for berry-scented, barrel-aged red wines made from Tempranillo and Garnacha. It is arguably Spain’s top wine region. This red is savory & classic with aromas of Garnet-cherry with good depth of color. Complex and intense on the nose where you can detect spicy and balsamic hints, shaded with cocoa, minerals and fine oak acquired during cask-ageing, which combine with fruity undertones. In the mouth it has good backbone and is supple, elegant, round and persistent. A wine with good structure and perfect retronasal phase, with a long, lingering finish. Excellent to drink with red meat, fowl, game and mature cheese.
