About The Wines:

Located in North Central Spain, the region of Rioja has been making wine for over 1,000 years. That’s not a typo. We’ll be tasting the following 7 wines.

2013 Bodegas LAN Rioja Blanco
Fresh fruit aromas of apple, pear and tropical fruits, as well as citric hints, and herbs. Fresh on the palate, with lively acidity.

2013 Muga Rioja Blanco
Subtle and elegant nose with citrus fruit, brioche and floral scents. Peach, pineapple and stone on the palate.

2008 Bodegas LAN Rioja Reserva
Brilliant ripe black cherry red colour with good depth. Aromas of blackberries, rose petals, saddle leather and fine wood. Velvety in the mouth with a long finish.

2005 Bodegas LAN Rioja Gran Reserva
Intense aromas of red fruits and fine wood. Elegant and well balanced in the mouth with flavors of sour cherries, dark plums, dried red fruits, leather and a little cigar and tar.

2010 Muga Reserva
Fine leather aromas mingle with red and black fruits black pepper, caramel, toast, vanilla, and cloves. The palette is juicy and meaty with the trademark Muga elegance.

2007 La Rioja Alta Vina Alberdi Reserva
Intense on the nose, with aromas of ripe red berries (strawberries and blackberries) and roasted coffee and caramel balsamic notes. Balanced on the palate, with sweet tannins that lead to a fresh and lingering finish. Aftertaste that recalls sweet spiced notes, candied fruit, minted chocolate, roasted coffee and caramel.

2004 La Rioja Alta Vina Gran Reserva 904
Complex aromas of balsamic, vanilla, coconut, chocolate and truffle wrapped around a core of candied fruit. Fine, silky tannins and a long and complex finish, with hints of roasted coffee, spices, and candied fruit.

We’ll also have a surprise older bottling on hand so don’t miss out on this great opportunity to taste some classic wines.
