Izadi Rioja El Regalo 2014
Special Price $16.98 Regular Price $32.98
91 Points! The 2014 El Regalo is named after the estate in the village of Villabuena where the old-vine Tempranillo grapes used for it are grown. The destemmed and crushed grapes fermented in oak vats with half of the volume going through malolactic in those vats and the other half in new barriques. The wine matured in the best barriques money can buy (50% French, 50% American) for some 20 months. It's ripe, heady, juicy and with a lactic component that gives it a commercial profile. The palate is full-bodied, chewy and tannic. Contrary to what many might think, the younger wine is also the most expensive. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com
91 Points! Boot polish and some brash, showy oak on offer here. This wine has a punchy, ripe dark cherry and cassis-flavoured palate. Powerful, dense tannins on the finish. Drink now. - JamesSuckling.com
