"First Time" Rioja for you!

Posted by Jimmy Van Bergen on 4/29/2014
Your First Rioja! by jimvanbergen Too many of my friends admit they haven't tried rioja. I have found an ideal "first time" rioja for you! Terra Milenaria, 2012, Rioja, Spain. Purchased from Astor Wine and Spirits, $8/bottle. 14% ABV. Light purple color, nose of boysenberry, wild blueberry, saddle leather and tar. In the mouth black cassis, blackberry, and black plum dominate with secondary notes of saddle leather, limestone and shale. I enjoyed this on my first tasting, then refrigerated it for later and enjoyed it over several days, enjoying how the fruit slowly paled over a series of days but remained tasty and enjoyable a week after opening. This dry Spanish red is the perfect entry- level bottle that costs less than a glass does in most establishments. A great value both in tempranillo and in red wine. ŕ votre santé! jimvanbergen | April 29, 2014 at 11:46 pm
