Tempranillo 90%, Graciano 10%
La Rioja Alta
Spain / Rioja
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Perfect with Pulled Beef Brisket Sandwich or Rack of Lamb.
Cherry-red with a ruby rim; clean, bright and lively. Highly complex nose with a creamy bouquet and spicy notes of cinnamon, vanilla, powder chocolate, snuff box and a background of undergrowth that lead to stewed red fruit and cherry liqueur. Tasty in the mouth, with good texture, balanced and fresh on the palate with elegant, tamed tannins. Outstandingly long, persistent and refined finish with notes of sweet tobacco, cedar and spice, cherry liqueur and coffee caramel aftertaste.
