Loxarel Penedès Ops 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Sight: Cherry with violaceous reflections. Nose: Vegetal notes appear in the first place and they remind us of green pepper; later on we find fruit aromas (red berries). The vanilla sweetness appears with elegance. Mouth: This wine is the result of the combination of the Cabernet and Merlot's fruit with the toasted and vanilla of the partial ageing of the Tempranillo. The result is a wine with a more modern style and easy to drink. The acidity is well compensated by the alcohol; the tannin is silky but firm, rounding the combination perfectly. Its aftertaste is long and spicy (vanilla, cinnamon). Ideal to go with roasted and stewed meat, and cured and creamy cheese. It combines very well with Mediterranean dishes.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

it is my first bottle. very good, strong but smooth. smell of Tampranillo is very clear. after one hour it gets smoother. decanting may not be necessary.
