Baron de Ley Rioja Reserva 2018

Category:

Tempranillo from Rioja, Spain

Tasting Notes

Clean and bright with a medium robe and a ruby-red color. On the nose it is complex with aromas of red fruits, sweet spices with a balsamic background. After a powerful attack the sensation of soft, supple volume gradually extends across the palate for a creamy finish. The aftertaste reminds you of the red berry fruit mingled with hints of wild herbs.

James Suckling – 92 Points

Real elegance here, with some vanilla, sweet spices, tobacco, plums and dark cherries on the nose. This is juicy, with lots of berries on the medium-bodied palate, following through to a tight, slightly chewy finish that will melt down in a year or two. Drinkable now, but better in 2024.

Pairing Notes

Pairs well with Patatas a la riojana, a hearty potatoes and chorizo-based stew.
