Dinastia Vivanco:
The origins of the winemaking vocation of the Vivanco family date back to the year 1915; to the winemaking district of the village of Alberite, La Rioja, where Pedro Vivanco Gonzalez started to make wine for family use from his vineyards. In 1940 he bought a small wine cellar business in the same village. A curious caption had been carved over the door of that cellar reading: “he who walks by and is thirsty, if the door is, should enter and drink”.

Deep rich purple with a darkness that seems to swallow the light. Nose with some green pepper and deep spice anise, pepper with a whiff of vanilla oak. As it opens in the glass a milk chocolate quality starts to show on the nose with a loamy note, almost of raw cocoa and earth followed by roasted coffee. Rich in the mouth with an initial light sweetness followed by a long and dry finish very well balanced and quite tasty. Rich raspberry, black cherry, light oak and a nice overall richness. The alcohol seems a bit hot but not out of whack. Fresh and alive the acidity pulls this wine through and makes it work well with its myriad flavors. C5a12t15o7=89 [89]

Intense fruit and good complexity. A modern style of Rioja, not heavily extracted, but nice weight and a good savoury finish.

Pale bright ruby. The nose is alive with red florals, bright red berry aromas, substantial minerality, and faint aromas of mulling spices. Smooth and suave on the palate, with potent flavors of raspberry, along with a hint of toffee. A steal at this ... Cory Gowan.
