Vineyards The grapes come from vineyards planted on limestone-rich clay soils. The fermentation was carried out in small stainless steel tanks for 15 days at temperatures below 27°C/80°F. Approximately 10% of the wine spent 5 months in French oak barrels. Aging Partially aged in French oak barrels for 5 months.
"A vibrant, primary-fruited style with fresh herbs and stems, as well as elderberry reduction. Medium-bodied, fruity and fresh. Drink now."
"A slew of blueberries makes this full-bodied, bright and moderately tannic red easy to enjoy right now. Should be good through 2020."
"Fresh, stony resiny nose with fragrant black plums, raspberries, and a dusting of violets. The attack is juicy with round, succulent red fruit reminiscent of freezer raspberry jam. The acidity is persistent and in balance with supple tannins. This is the New Rioja but it's done in a respectful way. Pair with lamb chops for a traditional match or barbecue ribs for a more rustic backyard dinner. It is all tempranillo fermented over two weeks in stainless steel and with ten percent on to spend five months in French oak. The alcohol is a modest 13.5 percent alcohol."
"Honoro Vera Rioja has aromas of dark cherry, red plum and cocoa. Its palate is fruity with spicy, ripe tannins, and hints of minerality. The finish is long with lingering notes of cocoa."
