Vina Herminia Tempranillo 2016 Rioja 750ml
$52.99 price per bottle
-Aged 3 months in American oak
-Aged 6 months in bottle before release
N: Fragrant cherries, plums, & certainly vanilla
P: LM body; NICE, almost swtish frt/oak met by some ALMOST puckerish astringency which slowly transitions into a LONG, bitter/swt finish with an earthy tanginess that invites another sip. LOVELY now & into '21 min, + may improve into early Fall '18 min. VERY nicely done! My EXC-/EXC. 95 pts Decanter as "Best Red Rioja of the Year" & Platinum Award, 87 WS, & Silver @ '16 Int'l Wine & Spirits Comp.
