90 Point Spanish Red Under $13.00!
Rioja is the most well-known and sought after Spanish wine in the world for very good reasons. The popularity of the Rioja region has grown significantly over the last decade, especially in the American market. Named after its region of origin, Riojas are Tempranillo based blends and are known for their tannic structure, similar to Cabernet Sauvignon, while also offering vibrant fruity characteristics.
We have started sampling some really amazing wines we cannot wait to share with you and we have made sure that
Rioja was a top priority!
One of the new Riojas we are bringing in is called Baron de Ley. This estate is rich in history with the main building, that is still used today, originally being a 16th century monastery. Over the years vineyards were planted and cultivated. In addition, for many years the area was maintained by Benedictine Monks, considered the experts of wine and spirits of the era.
As the years passed, the estate changed owners but the land was maintained and the traditions and history remembered. In the 1980s the founders of Baron de Ley took over with plans of making world-class wines. The estate was restored to be a reflection of the past and the vineyards were cultivated to be an expression of the high quality that the Benedictine Monks strove for in the past. We have enjoyed both the white and red wines of Baron de Ley in the past and were excited to see how the 2014 would show show.
From the very first sip we were very impressed. The vintage benefited from cool climates that resulted in fresh and savory wines and the Baron de Ley Rioja embodies this!
