"A custom cuvée made by Eric Solomon and Rafael de Haan, the 2015 Hazana Vinas Viejas is a classic, old school styled effort based on 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano aged 10 months in French and American oak. With medium to full-bodied richness, excellent concentration, and lots of chocolatey dark fruits, new leather, dusty earth, and graphite notes, it’s one hell of a wine for 14 dollars."

Product Description:

"Hazaña is a recently introduced custom cuvée made in partnership between Eric Solomon and Rafael de Haan. British born and educated, Rafael joined the UK wine trade in 2000 and early on realized that he rather have a career closer to the vine. In 2001 he moved to Barcelona, brokered some wine and opened a tapas bar before setting up his first property, Bodegas Abanico, in Rioja with his partner Nuria Altes.

Named for the ancient, poetic tales of heroism, Hazaña is made at Viñicola Real in the classical style of Rioja. The fruit comes from the vicinity of Logroño at 500 meters above sea level and on red clay and chalky limestone soils. A blend of Tempranillo with up to 15% Graciano, it is aged in French and American oak before release." - Importer
