2004 Bodegas Ramon Bilbao Rioja Reserva

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2008 Vintage) The charming town of Haro in Northern Spain’s Rioja region is home to Bodegas Ramón Bilbao. The vineyard’s Ramón Bilbao Reserva—a garnet-hued blend of 90 percent Tempranillo and 10 percent Mazuelo and Graciano grapes—is aged in oak for 20 months, giving it balsamic and tobacco notes over a background of chocolate and coconut. Full bodied with a vivid acidity, this complex red gives a lingering finish of cigar box, fruit preserve, spices, licorice, and leather. Pair it with spicy dishes, like curries, red meats and cured cheeses.

    Ruby red. Smoky cherry and red berries on the nose, with complicating notes of tobacco, leather and cured meat. A bit rustic but offers sweet red fruit flavors and good back-end lift. The firm finish offers a lingering note of bitter cherry skin. This needs a hunk of lamb.

    Awesome aroma. Like a sweet, light berry overtone. Very crisp and clean aroma. Taste is firm but has a soft plum like finish.
