WINE PROFILE

FINCA ALLENDE
Rioja 2008

91 POINTS - ANTONIO GALLONI      [Read More]

divider

The Allende Rioja, a 100% Tempranillo cuvee, was barrel fermented in a mix of new and used French oak, remained in barrel for 13 months, and was bottled unfiltered. The wine is inky purple-colored and has a superb nose of pain grille, mineral, violets, cranberry, and blueberry. The youthful palate reveals layers of fruit, ripe tannin, and excellent balance. The wine merits another 3-4 years of bottle age and should drink well through 2020.
