El Coto Rioja 2003 wine review by (PB)

This Spanish red designated Crianza is 100% Tempranillo and medium garnet in hue on the pour. There is a touch of vegetal tones with some dried red fruit. There is a firm layer of black pepper in the nose.

This wine is surprisingly tasty with a bit sweetish palate but very tight on opening. With some air dried cherries abound with good structure. This is a pleasant old world wine and for $9 would pair well with all kinds of Italian foods. I made home made ravioli with Italian sausage and it was really good! Raise a glass.

    This is my favourite red by a mile-or kilometre! I have been enjoying its wonderful aged taste over a number of years in Mallorca but have yet to see it in the UK.It always delivers on flavour and is a great accompaniment to red and white meat.
