Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 50% Tempranillo, 50% Garnacha

Bright pink color. The wine shows powerful strawberry and raspberry aromas and flavors. There is a marked expression of the grape varietals, with candied strawberries and violets, with hints of rose petal. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, refreshing and crisp fruit characters with subtle nuances.

Food pairings: White meats, sushi, scallops, salads, pork, fish, barbeque, Asian cuisine, antipasti.

My Notes:

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.
