2009 Señorío de P.Peciña Joven Rioja

SKU #1059848

This might be the most interesting unoaked tempranillo we currently carry. It's got a lot going for it. It comes from one of our favorite producers in Pedro Peciña; it is all cooler climate Rioja Alta fruit; it is made from all estate vines; and it has a spicy, blue and purple fruited quality that is most distinctive for a joven or cosecha wine from Rioja. We can not recommend highly enough this young Rioja from the stellar 2009 vintage.

An easy drinking, straightforward rioja. Spice and ripe fruit. This wine would be fantastic in sangria, but is enjoyable on its own!

This joven, or young wine, is made entirely from estate fruit. It is predominantly tempranillo - a pure, unoaked expression of the grape. Crisp, tangy red fruits. Ripe red raspberry. Spice. Extraordinary quality at this price. Try it with some fresh bread, jamón serrano and manzanilla olives.

I love this clean, fruity, unadulterated young Rioja, made from primarily young-vine Tempranillo (the blend is 95% Tempranillo, 3% Graciano, 2% Garnacha). Fresh black and red fruit notes abound. The palate is medium-bodied and lively, with just a kick of spice on the finish. A great food-friendly table wine to wash down your crudo and queso.

Young, bright and crisp, the Joven from Pecina is vibrant and zesty thanks to its cool climate roots. The intensity that this wine offers up with its dark fruit and vicarious mouth feel makes this wine a fun and affordable drink. If you have a bit of time to spend in our Redwood City shop, be sure to ask our Spanish buyer Joe about his ideas on Rioja and its food pairing possibilities...endless!

This is more than a simple everyday red. Charming fruit, a touch of spice an smattering of earth and justthe right amount of tannin and crisp acidity, this will pair great with just about any foods you can throw at it.

A lovely unoaked Rioja. This is Tempranillo in its purest form, with vibrant plum to blackberry fruit exploding on the nose and in the mouth, flashy, bright, and intense fruit on the finish and an exquisite, lush mouthfeel. Again, a wine that can drink now or age and evolve another two to three years. Anderson also wants to serve this wine at our Thanksgiving dinner, so I think we need to invite some friends over to share. 13.5% ABV. (Jim Barr)
Drink from 2010 to 2012

An easy drinking red that would pair with a wide variety of foods. I can imagine this also going well with hard sharp cheese. My wife and I are going to have it with chile relleno tonight. I love Riojas for their ability to pair with so many foods. I always thought Pinot Noir was the most flexible food wine but am changing my opinion. This wine is really nice due to the emphasis on the fruit as a result of no oak aging. This wine tastes vibrant and young and should hold for another three years easily.
Drink from 2012 to 2015

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 Penèdes 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.
