K&L Notes

Miguel Merino is our first direct import wine from Spain, and in our minds one of the great Rioja wineries. A single-vineyard bottling from one of their two oldest sites in Briones, planted in 1946, this cuvée takes the place of the wine formerly known as "Unnum." It's a terrific re-introduction, with delicious, bright fruit flavors, extraordinary intensity, and wonderful balance. Highly recommended.

Vines planted in 1946 from a single vineyard, this 90% tempranillo and 10% grenache reserva is aged 15 months in barrel. The vines are planted in calcareous soil which has good drainage and vines have to go deep into the soil for water. The NOSE on this wine is excellent and just smells like "yum" with sweet, fruit forward aromas. The taste is just as satisfying with smooth, velvety and sweet textures. A juicy and perfectly balanced wine, it's perfect to drink now (by itself or with a meal) or age for a few years to add complexity. Time to stock up!

Very dark and fruity nose with some notes of leather and licorice. On the palate, very rich, with dark black fruits and a very nice hint of minerals on the lingering finish. Quite big but, not overly so. This one should be super versatile for meals with everything from steak to chops to barbecue pork. A nice bit of wonderfulness in a bottle!
