Why We Love This Wine

Finca la Emperatriz is a unique vineyard consisting of one 101 hectare plot in the village of Banos de Rioja, at the very edge of the Rioja appellation. It has a largely Atlantic climate with extremely challenging & harsh soil conditions producing fine mineral wines of great character & excellent aging potential. A truly impressive Crianza, the Finca La Emperatriz 2011 has a clear, brilliant, deep cherry robe. On the nose, it has a forward personality & it is quite aromatic revealing blackberry & spice notes with subtle nuances of savory smoky bacon. On the palate, it is deep, serious, complex, & well built displaying good density, structure, & fine-grained tannins. There are persistent fruit & spice flavors combining both power & finesse through to its long, lingering finish.
