Food Pairings for Bodegas Ignacio Marin Cariñena Barón de Lajoyosa Gran Reserva
Ever feel like your sense were just hit with something from another planet? After drinking so many young iberian wines, I've forgotten what it's like to drink something with such ethereal flavors. Mild brick hues around the rim with a concentration of brown/red in the core. From the get go I felt my nose exploded with unfamiliar aromas such as violet, spring dirt, mineral and a bizarre aroma that I couldn't pin point until an hour after the first tasting, apricot! The palate, although equally bizarre, I found to be even more inviting than the bouquet. Viscous flavors such as brandied cherries, black raspberry syrup, apricot jam came to head ending with like a gentle lap on the beach with quiet hints of clove, anise and nutmeg. So wonderful and worth every single cent!
