SILKY TANNIN WRAPPED IN VANILLA & CEDAR, ROUND Lopez de Heredia is one of our wine heroes. Maintaining the traditional style of Rioja, this is a perfect example of the benefits of using special grape selections, natural yeasts, long-term oak aging, and bottling without filtration. Everything is done by hand, additive-free, and with great attention to detail. The vanilla spice wraps around birch, tobacco, and melon rind, with strawberry, earth, and a hint of smoke on the finish. Serving Suggestions: Charcuterie of jamón, Manchego, & Idiazabal. Celery root & mushroom lasagna. Filet mignon w/ bacon-wrapped asparagus.
