Ramon Bilbao Reserva Tempranillo Rioja 2009

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Tasting Notes: On the nose, the wine features balsam, chocolate, and coconut overlaid by ripe red fruit preserve. On the palate, it is full bodied with integrated tannins and food-friendly acidity. The persistent finish features notes of cigar box, fruit preserve, spices, licorice, and leather. Vintage Notes: With its hot and dry summer and moderate rainfall, 2009 Riojas feature rich fruit, full body, and rounded tannins. Winemaking: Clusters were picked by hand and underwent further screening at the bodega. Careful selection and fermentation of the grapes was followed by 20 months of aging in 2-year-old American oak barriques. The wine was then bottled and taken down to the cellar, where it continued to mature for a further 18 months. Varietal Composition: 90% Tempranillo 10% Mazuelo and Graciano pH: 3.55 TA: 5.6 g/L RS: 2.1 g/L Alc.: 14.20%
