About

94

"Pay no attention to the toasted oak scents that introduce this wine, because they soon leave the scene. Fix your attention instead to the generosity of its fruit, voluptuous and smooth. This is richly layered in flavors (some closer to meat than fruit), with a density that traps and wraps in a lovely way. All in all, a complex wine and an astonishing value. Finca El Encinal is a project from the traditional bodega Franco Espaolas de la Rioja." (06/13)

Product Description:

Wine:
"Cherry red with tile red hues. Aromas of ripe red fruit, are perfectly integrated in a bouquet dominated by soft spicy cedarwood. Ample, balanced and round, it has a long and persistent finish." - Winery

Winemaking/Aging:
"Harvested at night to guarantee the grapes arrive in perfect condition to our winemaking facility, the destemmed grapes are then cold macerated and fermented. Once malolactic fermentation concludes, the resulting wine is aged in American oak barriques. 12 months of aging in American White Oak (Ohio and Missouri)." - Winery
