Baigorri Reserva 2008

Rioja Alavesa, Spain

VARIETAL: 100% Tempranillo

AGING: Fermentation with native yeasts, malolactic and aging in new French oak barrels for 18 months.

WINEMAKER: Simon Arina

TASTING NOTES: "Inky ruby. A heady, smoky bouquet evokes candied dark berries, cherry-cola, mocha and cured tobacco. Sweet and expansive in the mouth, offering intense dark fruit and vanilla flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Closes sweet, spicy and long, with supple tannins and a hint of candied rose."      -Josh Raynolds
