"This red delivers power and balance. Plum and currant flavors mingle with licorice, espresso and mineral notes, deep and clean. Well-integrated tannins and firm acidity harness the concentration. Not showy, but complete. Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano. Drink now through 2035. 2,000 cases made. — TM"
Senorio de Villarrica has 160 years of experience when it comes to Spanish winemaking. This historic property is most known for being one of the first in La Rioja. With just a tractor and hand tools, this winery began with nearly nothing and over time has built itself into one of the best in the region.
This blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha, and Graciano is perfectly balanced between earth and fruit. 2015 was a good year in Rioja, so expect some ripe red fruit notes backed by spice and a long rich finish from time spent in oak.
Don't be afraid to lay a couple of these down for the next decade or more!
