Winemaker's Notes:

2001 is one of the top rated Rioja vintages in recent memory. Weather was hot and extremely dry throughout the growing season resulting in wines of great concentration and extraction. The 2001 is dark in color while showing the early stages of maturity around the edges. Polished and refined on the palate with notes of cherry, cedar, tobacco and leather.

About El Coto:

The first wines of El Coto de Rioja were introduced to the Spanish market with the 1970 vintage in 1975. So great was their success that two years later, the decision to double the capacity of the wine maturing in their cellars was taken in order to export part of the production. Their growth has continued unabated for 25 years, and now El Coto has been launched in the United States market through Frederick Wildman and Sons. Today, the world is looking for wines with character and elegance; moderate in alcohol content, well balanced and harmonious with refined cuisine. El Coto is an excellent example of a new generation of quality Spanish wines, which conforms to prevailing tastes.
