Aspaldi, Reserva Rioja 2009, Rioja, Spain
Tasting Note: A mellow, silky Rioja that presents better than average tempranillo fruit.
Medium-intensity ruby in color this wine has an aromatic nose of red cherry, red plum, strawberry and red currant.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied Rioja expresses fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and ripe, medium tannin.
The wine displays balance and presents some midpalate fruit concentration and notes of complexity.
