Pata Negra Rioja Reserva 2012

Rioja, SpainThere's a lovely firm presence to this Reserva Rioja, with structured black fruit, anise, graphite and wood smoke wrapped around a sweet chocolate cherry core. The ten percent graciano in this blend adds an alluring lift and lightness, while the tight, gritty wood-hewn tannins hold it all in. Well built, and ready to drink now with pork tenderloin.Tasted: 11 January 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 19.99 BCLS Producer: Marqués de Carrión Wineries of J García CarriónDistributors: Christopher Stewart Wines and Spirits Inc.
