Marqués de Arienzo Rioja Crianza 2005

Member Review by Natalie Kronick:

What a FIND! Fantastic old-world Rioja style wine. 95% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano & Mazuelo. This had a wonderful nose of sweet leather, white pepper, some dried fruits, like fig and a little bit of dried leaves. Flavor of currants, oak, vanilla spice. Lovely tannins that balanced out well with food. I paired it with some whole-wheat pasta with melted chevre, asparagus played off the herbaceousness of the wine, and some garlicky chicken mixed in enhanced the body. Intensely drinkable! Dry and silky.
