Red Wine /// Rioja Blend // Rioja Alvesa / Spain
Produced with grapes from vineyards in the village of balos close to the Sierra Cantabria, mostly Tempranillo with some 12% Graciano. The destemmed but uncrushed grapes fermented with indigenous yeasts, and the wine matured in 500-liter oak barrels for one year, except for almost 25 of the volume, which was kept in concrete. This wine has good ripeness and doesn't show any oak whatsoever. The wines from this year are quite pure and fresh for the conditions of the year. It's drinking very well now, but the balance and stuffing hint at a good evolution in bottle. WINE ADVOCATE
