Food Pairings for Bodegas El Coto Tempranillo Rioja Coto de Imaz Reserva
First wine that I tried at the Rioja event. Nice oaky barrel flavors in the aroma and palate. Update: Nov 9, 2011 - Had this in the office. The oaky aromas are very complex, though not as powerful as I remember, with hints of herbs and red chili peppers. The mouth has pretty nice tannins, with a good deal of heat in the back. A little bit of cherry fruit in the middle softens it.

Prototypical Rioja. Fresh and bright with an earthy mineral core. Great aroma of dried cherries and oak. Not too extreme in any facet so it would be a great gift wine. Paired lovingly with a grilled chorizo sausage. Do not decant as it fell apart later in the evening. Drink now.
Had this 2 June, 2011. Very classical Rioja - berry plums with clear leather, cedar and vanilla. Soft oak gives a soft and medium full taste. In fact, for a Rioja, it is surprisingly light, not very tannic and has a gentle aftertaste. Not a lot of depth, but easy-drinking. I liked it.
This is truly delicious. It even held up the next day (after pumping out the air and keeping in the refrigerator). At first sniff, it reminds me of being in an old library with the windows opened and a fresh spring breeze, and then, at the end, just when you're not sure, a hint of something sweet, like a freshly opened jar of maraschino cherries or freshly licked red lollipop. The taste is velvety soft, and a little smokey-spice lightly scratching the back of your throat, like someone lightly brushing their finger nails against your skin. As the wine settles on your palate and the aroma makes its way into your nasal cavity, a blast of sweet strawberry syrup with a faint whisper of plum jam. This is SUCH a fun wine!!!
Tasted my first tempranillo today, and absolutely loved it! I am a huge fan of Merlots, and the Bodegas Tempranillo reminded me of a a fine glass of good Merlot. It was fresh, creamy, fruity and delicious on it's own, as well as alongside a meaty bolognese. Very clean finish! Delicious!
Extraordinary for the price. I like it 500 times.
External Reviews for Bodegas El Coto Tempranillo Rioja Coto de Imaz Reserva
This light and frisky tempranillo is styled like a fine pinot noir, with fragrant rose petal scents and tension to its lasting red fruit. The tannins are present but not heavy, so the wine leaves a clean impression. For roast fish in a red wine sauce. Bright red color. Ripe cherry and blackcurrant aromas are complemented by vanillin oak spices and cured tobacco. Fleshy and sweet, offering concentrated cherry preserve and bitter chocolate flavors and picking up dusty tannins on the back end. Turns juicier and spicier on the finish, which strongly echoes the cherry and bitter chocolate notes. Id give this a few more years of bottle age to mellow out. An opening of spice, toasted fruit, leather and lemon peel is attractive in the traditional sense. Medium bodied, with tangy red-cherry flavors up front and some citrus in the rear. Finishes light and fresh, with touches of vanilla and fresh-chopped dill. Very drinkable if you like a more classic-style Rioja. Sweet vanilla frames raspberry and strawberry fruit, with accents of wild herbs and lilac in this supple, expressive red. A bit candied, but appealing. Drink now through 2010. 2,500 cases imported. -TM
