From a 130 year old estate, it really doesn't get much better than this! 2010 is considered by some to be the best vintage in Rioja in the last 50 years, and was rated "excellent" by the Rioja Control Board - all that means is that this wine drinks! Showing supreme elegance & complexity, this blend of mostly Tempranillo shows spicy cherry fruit, pipe smoke, fresh fig, leather, and a very subtle whole vanilla bean bouquet, with a palate that is extremely smooth, with a long finish dominated by flavors of dark cherry, cacao, and cracked black pepper. This works well with everything from Manchego cheese to cured pork to cassoulet!
