This week’s W.O.W. is a highly-rated, Rioja made from 100% hand-harvested Tempranillo grapes. This wine is a welcome warmer on a cold winter night and an excellent value for a Rioja of this quality!
90 Points, Vinous:
“Vivid ruby. Bright, sharply focused aromas of fresh red fruits and flowers, along with a spicy overtone and a hint of vanilla. Lithe and appealingly sweet on the palate, offering vibrant, oak-spiced raspberry and cherry flavors and a subtle rose pastille nuance. Finishes supple and long, displaying silky, slow-building tannins and resonating spiciness.”
Delicious to sip on its own and great paired with beef and lamb dishes, hardy stews and even hamburgers!
