2012 Bodegas Larchago Rioja Crianza

larchago

I tasted this Rioja a week or so ago and really liked it. But I didn’t list it as a MySomm feature and I’m not sure why. Then, over the week, I had multiple customers come back to me and ask me to order cases for them. So I thought, “there must be something with this wine.” So I tasted it again. I immediately called my supplier and told him to send me 5 more cases.

The wine is simply good. A seven year old Rioja under $20. Aged at the winery, only to be released to you when it’s ready for consumption. You can’t ask for better than that. I’ve got this IN STOCK ready for you to pick up today and can order as much as you’d like. This may very well become your new “everyday” wine. Come check it out.

MySomm Tasting Notes: “Intense, cherry-red tone, with medium-high depth and purple rim. Complex aromas. Appropriate ageing ensures a good balance between the aromas contributed by the oak and ripe, fruity varietal aromas of wild berries. This is an expressive wine in the mouth, very tasty and full of flavors. Very harmonious palate with elegant, sweet tannins. Clean, persistent aftertaste, leaving a pleasant memory.”

MySomm Price: $18.20
