Rio Madre Rioja Graciano 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Robert Parker: The same characteristics are also present in the 2011 Rio Madre. It exhibits slightly riper blackberry fruit intermixed with notions of licorice, wood smoke, camphor and a vivid floral display. These cuvees are aged in French oak prior to bottling. Both should drink well for 2-5 years. (Oct 2012)

From what I read, most rioja's use tempranillo grapes more than graciano, whereas this wine is 100% graciano. I absolutely loved this rioja and it's one of my favorites. Very intense wine, complex, heavy tannins. Would definitely buy again.

Produced from 100% Graciano, we were super excited to find this gem among a massive flood of homogenized Rioja. Violet and plum on the nose. Soft berry notes balanced by just the right amount of acidity gives this wine its balance and harmony.
