Charming, red berry fruit and a kiss of vanilla and mocha in this delightful Crianza from Rioja. The wine's a joy on its own or with chargrilled meat, cured ham, or a variety of tapas.
If you've ever had the pleasure of a "tapas crawl" along Logro̱o's Calle Laurel, you will have seen that the preferred wine for many of the locals is the Joven, or young wine. This delicious, sappy young red displays the beauty and potential of the region so well and it also is a great accompaniment to some of the richer foods available. We love this style but understand that many people want a little more spice and richness so we take the young succulent joven style and blend in a little of the softer, more oaky wine to give a beautiful young red with succulent fruits, a touch of vanilla and just enough spice.
