K&L Notes

Miguel Merino makes, as he likes to put it, an "updated classic" style of Rioja, all from his own 2 hectares of vines and several hectares of vineyards owned by a close friend. All the fruit is from sloped vineyards (Miguel is a fan of his slopes) within the cooler climate Rioja Alta town of Briones, which makes his wine a terrific showcase of the terroir (especially in a region where wines blended from various villages are more often the norm).

Sigh. Another new favorite Rioja. We seem to find these weekly, these days. A really cool nose of rye bread and juicy dark red berries. On the palate, very dark red and black fruits. This baby starts off quite rich and ends very dry with a clean dose of oak. Balances "New World" and "Old World" very well. Starts of as the former and ends with the latter. Should please pretty much everyone and the price is easy on the wallet, too!
