Rioja Reserva 2014
Coto de Imaz, Rioja Spain
Coto de Imaz - Rioja Reserva 2014 (87 tsomw points) - 100% Tempranillo - 18 months in American oak barrels and maturing in the bottle for at least 18 months.
A Rioja with a very pleasant price, quality, rate. Coto de Imaz Reserva is a classic wine from La Rioja. Their vineyards are located in Rioja Alta, in the town el Cenicero, where clay-limestone soil predominates.
The climate is continental with Mediterranean influences, extreme temperatures and few hours of sunshine. This type of soil and climate favours the subsequent aging of wine as it provides a very good acidity and grape extract.
In the glass a ruby red color with garnet reflections.
On the nose intense aromas of dark red fruit, spices and chocolate.
On the palate dry, mouth-filling with lots of dark cherries and blackberries with well integrated wood and vanilla. The wine has a nice tannic structure and a long pleasant aftertaste.
Good choice to be served with game, red meat and beef.
