2012 Castillo Labastida Rioja Crianza D.O.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Dense crimson ruby with bright rim.

Nose: The bouquet is of dark cherry and blackberry fruit conserve with some spicy notes, notably cinnamon and toasted vanillan.

Palate: Good fruit weight with medium body, power and richness yet with great acid balance and a velvety tannic structure. The finish is long showing good persistence of blackberry conserve and complex spicy notes.

Food: A classic Crianza Rioja which will match beautifully with steak and other grilled red meats, casseroles (beef or lamb in particular), Spanish chorizo sausages, and mature cheeses such as manchego (sheep’s milk). Enjoy now and over the coming 3-4 years
