Altanza 2014 Rioja Reserva 'Familia', Spain

$27.99
($27.99 Incl. tax)

This is a modern, polished style Rioja wine; bold and rich but well balanced.  There is plenty of dark red and black cherry fruit and oak spice but the oak is integrated very well with vanilla, baking spices and tobacco showing more than wood flavors.
Description

Altanza's 'Familia' wine is 100% Tempranillo from their oldest vines (80+ years)  from different vineyard sites.  The wine is aged a total of 21 months in French oak barrels. This is a modern, polished Rioja wine; bold and rich but not a monster.  There is plenty of dark red and black cherry fruit and plenty of oak spice but the oak is integrated very well with baking spices and tobacco showing more than wood flavors. Only 35K bottles of this wine were produced.  Altanza is a newer winery in Rioja started by a group of friends who wanted to produce traditional Rioja wines with a modern touch by only using French oak barrels and casks to vinify and age their red wines.
