Sonsierra | Crianza Selected Harvest 2011
REGION | Rioja Alta, Spain
VARIETIES | 100% Tempranillo
AGING | 12 months in 70% American and 30% second year French oak barrels and rested for a minimum of 1 year in the bottle.
TASTING NOTES | This is an elegant yet original wine that has an intensely bright cherry color with a maroon sheen. Powerful on the nose, with aromas of ripe red fruits perfectly matched with vanilla, cream, light toasted and mineral overtones which give it a great complexity. It gradually unveils as it airs in the glass. Its palate is intense yet elegant; the ripe tannins stand out alongside its breadth and roundness, leaving a lengthy, pleasant aftertaste.
PAIRING | White and red grilled meat, pates, blue cheese and rice dishes.
