Rioja Gran Reserva / Rioja Spain / Tempranillo / Coto de Imaz: Full body, fruit. Black cherry, licorice, vanilla.
Our most popular wine by the glass, and amazing value both at Klaustur and at ATVR. Full body, rich in fruit. Gran Reserva designation in Rioja means that this wine has aged in oak for at least 2 years, and another 3 years in the bottle. This gives the wine a beautiful hint of vanilla and licorice. Since this wine has aged well before it goes for sale, the tannins are soft giving way to a drinkable fruit-forward wine. At home this wine pairs well with lamb, Spanish chorizo, and is perfect for charcuterie meats and sheep’s cheese such as Manchego.
