Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby red with a tawny rim. An intense nose of balsamic wood and musk against a background of red berries and earthiness. In the mouth it is big, soft and easy to drink but at the same time increasingly tasty and full as the wine opens up. Later, notes of liquorice, spices and red fruit emerge. At the back of the mouth its finish is long and persistent.

Drink with red and white meat, roast lamb, pork, beef, game, poultry, stews, rice dishes, pulses, mushrooms and mature or blue cheese.

My Notes:

About Bodegas Ramirez de la Piscina:

The name Ramírez de la Piscina traces its lineage back to the Navarra Kings who fought in the First Crusade during the 11th century. Included among this noble ancestry is the famous Cid Campeador. The name is also strongly embedded in the small village of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, which is centrally located in the Sonsierra lands, in the heart of La Rioja Alta.

Bodegas Ramírez de la Piscina elaborates its wines with grapes proceeding from its own vineyards located in Abalos and from other very carefully selected estates.
