Faustino Tempranillo Blend Rioja Reserva V 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Bright, intense cherry-red with a tawny rim. Aroma: Intense, with fine toasty notes from the oak and hints of red berries against a light background of stewed fruit. Notes of vanilla and spices contributed by the oak during cask aging. Palate: Round, velvety and meaty with a lovely integration of the sweet tannins from the grapes and those from the wood, resulting in a smooth yet robust wine.

Bodega Faustino was built in 1968 but wine production under the Faustino name began long before that when, in 1861, Eleutorio Martinez Arzok purchased a vineyard in Oyon, Spain.  The vineyard stayed in the family and bottling begin in 1930 by Faustino Martinez Perez de Albeniz. Bodega Faustino sits on a little over 1,500 acres across the municipalities of Laguardia, Logrono, Mendavia, and Oyon in Northeastern Spain.  By combining local climate and conditions with the tradition and experience of winemakers, Faustino wines are recognized and celebrated all over the world. Stainless steel tanks and state-of-the-art technologies are combined with traditional processes to create the unique Faustino wines that, after being aged in either American or French Oak, continue to be celebrated.

Dark and meaty. Strong tannins. Cherry and prune notes. (Tasted as part of a marathon at the Wines from Spain trade event.)

From the wine offered in every bigger grocery shop in Dublin I expected nothing more than unbalanced, alcoholic beverage made of grapes. Once I got the bottle for free it occupied a quiet corner in the kitchen. One night I decided to give it a go and to my surprise my palate experienced a harmonious blend of silky leather, tabacco and ripe plums. Tannins were smooth and the aftertaste left me no other option but to drink another glass. It's not an amazing wine, but for the price you pay for it you can hardly find any better.

A Tempranillo wine from Rioja in Spain. 2002 Bodegas Faustino Rioja V Reserva 750ml

In this Reserva, Faustino has created a wine that is loyal to the flavors of traditional Rioja. A pretty, herbal bouquet gives way to a mouthful of red berries. On the finish, a burst of tangy acidity reminds us that true Rioja is made for food.
