Bodegas Vizcarra 2018 Senda del Oro
Ruby-red. Mineral-tinged raspberry, incense and floral pastille scents pick up a spicy accent with air. Juicy, sweet and seamless in texture, offering concentrated red fruit and spicecake flavors that put on weight as the wine opens up. The spice and floral notes carry through a long, energetic, focused finish shaped by silky, even tannins. Pair with pork and lamb, especially grilled or roasted, are ideal pairings for this wine, but beef, from steaks and roasts to more casual burgers, also works very well. If you like spices, this wine has the “stuffing” to stand up to Cajun or Midwestern BBQ and pulled pork, and it will go well with Greek gyros, Cuban ropa vieja and dishes with Mediterranean spices.
Composition: 100% Tempranillo
Helmed by Juan Carlos Vizcarra, Bodegas Vizcarra realized they owned a truly special site when powerhouse bodegas such as Vega Sicilia would come to source some of their fruit when their own was not entirely up to their standards. Now applying his meticulous nature to the entire course of production, Juan Carlos produces elegant, classic representations of quality Ribera del Duero Tempranillo.
