This is a fruity, all-stainless-steel-raised Rioja from very old vines in Rioja Alta. The winemaker is a Frenchman who fell in love with Rioja. The wine is bursting with black fruit and spice that comes from the Graciano grape (rather than new oak).

Winemaker's Notes:

Perennial favourite at BBR and, it should be said, several of its most<br/>prestigious restaurant customers, Franz Venes' Cuvée des Oliviers<br/>is a blend of 30% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 30% Carignan, 20% Cinsault, 10% Syrah and<br/>10% Grenache. It is juicy but with a Southern French concentration, manifested<br/>by hints of herbs, liquorice and spice adorning a bedrock of ripe fruit, of<br/>both red and black complexion.Les Oliviers is showing especially well in 2009,<br/>a stunning vintage across most of the South of France and looking every bit as<br/>good, if not better than the excellent 2007. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
