Bodegas Valsacro Tempranillo Blend Rioja Dioro Seleccíon J&d 2004
Tasting Notes:The 2004 Dioro is composed of 40% Tempranillo, 40% Garnacha, 10% Graciano, and, surprise, surprise, 10% Macabeo, a white grape. The wine is a barrel selection aged for 12-14 months in new French oak. Valsacro's rendition of Cote-Rotie works just fine. Purple in color, the wine is fragrant with notes of spice box, flowers, blueberry, and assorted black fruits. Smooth-textured, ripe, and lengthy, this is a hedonistic effort to drink over the next 6-8 years.
External Reviews for Bodegas Valsacro Tempranillo Blend Rioja Dioro Seleccíon J&d
Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by a rich, sumptuous nose of cigar tobacco interwoven with black currants, cherries, earth, and spice box. Medium to full-bodied, with wonderful sweetness, supple tannin, and decent acidity, it should be consumed over the next 5-7 years given the vintage’s fragile fruit.
