2007 Telmo Rodriguez Lanzaga Rioja (Rioja, Spain)
Wine - Red $33.99 (750mL)
Lanzaga comes from a vineyard near Lanciego, near the north eastern border of Rioja Alta, where the influence of the Mediterranean and Atlantic meet. Biodynamically farmed, it combines pure and intense fruit with a lovely elegance. A blend of 90% Tempranillo, 7% Garnacha, and 3% Graciano, This Rioja is a blend of Tempranillo, Graciano and Grenache and 100% from Bush vines. Classic nose of wild berries, dark plums, vanilla oak, clove and cinnamon. The mouthfeel is spicy, the tannins are ripe and well-integrated and bright acidity keeps this wine lively. The finish is long and savoury. This classy Rioja is very elegant, well made and perfectly balanced. It has the structure to evolve short-term. Pair this with a roasted vegetable lasagna.
