Tahon de Tobelos, Reserva, La Rioja, Rioja, Spain, 2012
100% Tempranillo. A manual harvest and rigorous selection is used for this incredible wine. Aged for 14 months in new American oak barrels, bottled and then aged another 22 months before release.
Superb intense open nose, aromas of toasted oak and wild berries with balsamic and mineral tones. Huge wine of enormous depth and structure with great elegance, soft and rounded, complex fruit character of blackberries, plums, damsons with refined, integrated oak, toasted cocoa and vanilla flavours, broadening out on palate and leaving a wondrous finish.
Pairs well with game, red meats, baked fish and semi- cured cheeses.
