2000 Señorío de P.Peciña Reserva Rioja

SKU #1054221

According to Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Sep 09: "Cherry pit, cured tobacco and leather on the nose. Dry and a bit stern, with sweet flavors of cherry and chewing tobacco. Tangy acidity adds lift and cut to the finish, which is impressively persistent if a touch tart. With air this wine gained some sweetness, but this style is better suited to those with traditional tastes."

A most excellent rioja! Wonderful cherry and earth notes with just enough age to make it subdued and elegant. A perfect choice for those of you who want an "old world" style without having to wait for it to mellow.

Here we have a great example of traditional Rioja from a good vintage: a complex bouquet, showing earthy, mushroomy, dried fruit aromas upfront, with darker notes of cocoa and fig as well as lifted notes of red fruit and spice, which are echoed on the palate. Medium-bodied, with a velvety mouthfeel, fine tannins, and a long finish that remains lifted by balanced acidity, this wine is more structured than the 2003 and makes an elegant option for a variety of foods, especially of the Iberian or North African ilk. It would be delicious with a Moroccan lamb tagine (say, with raisins, almonds, and honey) but equally delightful accompanying a good spanish or Basque cheese (like smoked Idiazabal cheese) or even something a little piquant, such as a personal favorite of mine and specialty of Turi, my favorite Argenitine host father-turned-Gallego, fried pimientos de padron.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Tempranillo

- A very important red grape varietal that's native to Northern Spain, grown across the north and central regions of the country. Low in acid and alcohol, with subtle strawberry, leather and tobacco notes, the grape responds well to oak aging and plays particularly well with others. Tempranillo is an important component, when combined with Garnacha, Mazuelo, Viura and Graciano, of Rioja, with the best examples coming for the cooler, higher-elevation regions like Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. It is also grown in significant quantities in the Ribera del Duero where it is called Tinto Fino and Penčdes where it is called Ull de Llebre o Ojo de Llebre. Tempranillo hasn't gained a particularly strong foothold outside of Spain, achieving some success under the name Tinto Roriz in Portugal. There it is used as a component of Port and in the table wines of the Ribera del Duero and the Dão.
Country:

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
