Varieties: Tempranillo mainly, with Garnacha, Graciano & Mazuelo.
Appearance: Deep crimson.
Nose: Aromatically pronounced, with dark berries, cedar, and spice.
Palate: Dry, medium bodied. Plenty of harmonious deep cherry, dark berries, integrated cedar and spice. Very well balanced with a long and sultry finish.
Vinification: Paisajes (pronounced: pie-sarhh-hrez) is a collaboration between Miguel Angel de Gregorio (of Finca Allende) and Quim Vila (of Vila Viniteca) that began in 1998 and was only recently imported to NYC. Mostly from a single parcel of 70+ year old vines in Rioja Alta, with some of the Garnacha coming from Rioja Baja, aged in French oak for 16 months. Very limited production, only 800 cases made a year!
Recommended Food Pairing: Roasted duck, venison, a juicy bone-in Porterhouse steak, or a aged parmesan-dusted creamy rabbit ragu.
