The beautiful wines of Rioja seduced us and here is our own version of Rioja in Washington. A deep dark color and a soft finish with signature backbone and tannin structure of the varietal. Aged 22 months in French Oak Barrels.
Examples of this variety from this young growing region are quite rare. This one provides aromas of pencil lead, herb, vanilla and prune that are followed by a flavorful palate with the black-fruit flavors seeming slightly dried out.
