Xavier Flouret Tempranillo Blend Rioja Fé 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

"Bright red. Red- and blackcurrant on the nose, with notes of tobacco, vanilla and cocoa powder and a subtle toasty quality. Smooth, supple and gently sweet, offering palate-staining dark berry preserve and bitter cherry flavors, with dusty tannins lending grip. The mocha note repeats on the finish, which is sweet, focused and long...90" IWC 09/09 "Bright scents of cherry and rose lighten the earthier notes of this Rioja. It ends gentle and clean, with a mouthwatering bond of fruit and tannins. For roast lamb with pequillo peppers...91" 2009 W&S

Bright scents of cherry and rose lighten the earthier notes of this Rioja. It ends gentle and clean, with a mouthwatering bond of fruit and tannins. For roast lamb with pequillo peppers.

Bright red. Red- and blackcurrant on the nose, with notes of tobacco, vanilla and cocoa powder and a subtle toasty quality. Smooth, supple and gently sweet, offering palate-staining dark berry preserve and bitter cherry flavors, with dusty tannins lending grip. The mocha note repeats on the finish, which is sweet, focused and long.
