La Viña De AMAYA 2020


Intense deep purple hue with aromas of dark berries, pipe tobacco, blackberry pie, a touch of pie spices and floral overtones and a hint of savory spice.

Palate--silky structure with vibrant tannins, fruit forward big blackberry flavors with a mouth filling finish. Well made and will be amazing in another 2-3 years.

This Rioja red made with Tempranillo-- the signature grape of the Rioja, Spain and Garnacha (Grenache) which is a bright, fruity, cheerful grape sets this wine on a course of loveliness. What is hard to fathom is I paid $9 for this wine which I see selling for $25.  I am pairing it with leftover rib roast from Christmas and I know it will be glorious!  [And it was!]   Raise a glass!
