Vina Cubillo Red Rioja Crianza 2009, Spain, reduced from CHF24.90 to CHF19.90
Usually, 10 year old Riojas are released as a producer’s highly prized – and expensive – Gran Reserva. But Lopez de Heredia are no ordinary Rioja producer, and this is their youngest Rioja available in bottle! The 2009 vintage was perfect in the region – warm, dry and sunny – and produced deliciously ripe, raspberry- fruited reds. The vintage’s warmth and richness combined with this producer’s fresh and classic winemaking style result in this remarkably stylish wine which would be the ideal companion for roasted Easter Lamb. This wine has 92/100 points from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.
