Dehesa Gago G Tinto Joven Telmo Rodriguez Toro Do 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Lanzaga combines pure and intense fruit with a lovely elegance. A blend of 90% Tempranillo, 7% Garnacha, and 3% Graciano, the grapes for Lanzaga come from slopes that are protected from erosion by the vineyard plantings. The vineyards are placed between 500 and 600 meters of altitude on plateaus over continental Miocene sandstone strata. These flat, stony, shallow soils offer low fertility and low water retention capacity, and force the bush-trained vines to stuggle, ensuring low yields. After harvest, the wine is fermented in cement tanks and matured for 14 months in French oak foudres and new barrels.

This is how the business started, originally under the name of Compañía de Vinos de La Granja. The name was a declaration of intent: it made it clear that the company would be producing more wines in the future and contained a homage to La Granja, the famous glassworks, a centre of outstanding Spanish craftwork that has all but disappeared.

This is deep, lush and earthy on the nose, with tobacco, broad spice aromas and fair but generous oak. It feels tight and balanced, with toasty, peppery flavors of cassis and black cherry. It's long, toasty and chocolaty on the finish, with layered s... Wine Enthusiast. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rioja in Spain. 2008 Telmo Rodriguez Rioja Lanzaga 750ml

This red is light-bodied but muscular, with focused flavors of cherry, berry, herbs and tobacco, supported by light, firm tannins and lively acidity. Balanced and subtle.

This wine is made entirely from the Tinto de Toro grape, better known as Tempranillo. The “G” is fermented in stainless steel, allowing its pristine aromas of black plum, cherry and spice to be perfectly preserved.
