La Rioja Alta
Spain / Rioja
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Perfect with Pulled Beef Brisket Sandwich or Rack of Lamb.
Medium-depth cherry-red with a pale pink rim. Very intense, clean aromas, with dominating balsamic and spicy notes —vanilla, caramel, chocolate mint and spices against a fruity background of prunes and dried apricots. Well-balanced in the mouth, with an elegant acidity, good structure, round, polished tannins and an oily finish. The aftertaste is ample and very long, with notes of sweet fruit and marked liquorice.
