Señorío de San Vicente, San Vicente, Rioja, Spain 2011
An 18ha parcel close to the Sierra de Cantabria is the source of the Tempranillo here. Rich, concentrated, aromatic yet also refreshing, it’s a ripe mountain wine, showing flavours of orange peel, mulberry, Asian spices, vanilla and tobacco. The tannins are ultra-fine, the finish very long.
