A wine that clearly demonstrates the potential, quality and balance of a stellar Rioja, it is deep cherry-red in color and contains enticing aromas of ripe forest berries, black licorice candy and lightly toasted oak. This multi-terroir, monovarietal wine is ample on the mid-palate and has very round, voluminous tannins. With a long and complex finish, this wine can age for up to 15 years and will pair well with a multitude of dishes.
"The 2011 Vinas de Gain red is pure Tempranillo from Laguardia made from vines averaging 30 years of age, fermented in open vats and aged in barrique for one year. Expressive and fruity in the nose, the palate is much more powerful; it has great purity, with clean flavors and a special freshness. It’s very primary, built of pure fruit, raspberries and strawberries. Drink 2015-2020."
