Torres Ibericos Rioja 2008
The village of Labastida is in La Rioja Alavesa and it may be said that its very stones breathe history. Situated at 1,271 meters above sea level, the village has aristocratic details that allow us to travel into the past. It is in this handsome enclave that the new Torres winery in La Rioja has been built.
Really dark wood aromas with lively spices, very intoxicating and sort of fantastical. The mouth has some very nicely rounded acids and good tannin structure, with a feeling on the finish that's like dark chocolate.
Dark fruit and spice on the nose. very bold with hints of cherries and tannins. a long fruity finish. A very tasty, but heavy wine.
fresh forest fruits and spices smooth and long
Food Pairings for Torres Ibericos Rioja
This has a nose with some intense toasty barrel notes from the outset that enlarge into notes of coffee and even bacon. The mouth is seemingly simple, but the red fruit notes expand to handle that toastiness, and red and black cherry richness covers the spicy end.
