El Rincón de Los Enebros Grenache Blend 2018
- Rich, full-bodied
- Rioja DOC
Finca de la Rica , who make this wonderful wine, are one of our all time favourite Rioja producers. They work with around forty small plots of old vines across Rioja Alavesa and make small volumes of top-quality wine. El Rincón de Los Enebros is their take on a grenache-dominant blend, with tempranillo playing a supporting role. Anyone familiar with the region knows that old vine garnacha from Rioja can reach lofty heights of excellence and this wine certainly has some of that magic.
Part of the magic is the twelve months that it spends in new American oak, that is wrapped into the generous fruit, and balanced by the fresh notes (likely from the temp). It’s rich and powerful, and very silky - the fruit spectrum is blue and red (in abundance) and there are layers of toasty vanillin notes along with baking spice. I’m going to take a punt and say that lovers of full-bodied reds from malbec to shiraz to Amarone are going to be absolutely delighted by this one.
Full price $65.00 from the producer.
