It's no surprise that this zesty Reserva was just awarded a Gold Medal in The Decanter Magazine World Wine Awards for 2010. From the Bodegas Franco-Espanolas, a winery with a history going back 100 years comes this blend of Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo that’s been aged to perfection, first in toasted American oak casks and then in bottle for a total of 2 years. The result is a stunning supple and rich Rioja that drinks like a wine at its peak of perfection. Black plums, raspberry, caramel and spices carry the palate to a long, velvety finish. Enjoy this lush, great value red now while you wait for the rest of the wines in your cellar to mature.
