Alain Jaume Tavel Rose Le Cretace 2016

Closeout Vintage!

Alain Jaume Tavel Rose Le Cretace is made from 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre

Rosé de saignée (bleed technique) with a vibrant ruby color, complex and elegant, notes of crushed strawberries and rose petals.

Review:

"I loved the 2016 Tavel Le Crétacé, and this Grenache dominated beauty offers a big, ripe, even a touch reductive nose of black cherries, mineral water and wild strawberries. Elegant, yet rich and textured, it’s a terrific Rosé well worth drinking over the coming year or so. - Jeb Dunnuck"

Luis Canas Rioja Reserva 2013

Luis Canas Rioja Reserva is made from 100 percent 95% Tempranillo and 5% Graciano

A classic style Rioja Reserva from one of the regions most enduring family run wineries. The hillside terraced vineyards are sheltered by the Sierra Cantabria Mountains to the north from harsh weather extremes. Small plot production is utilized in this region of infertile chalky clay soil to produce clusters of excellent quality. Almost 900 plots are needed to complete the approximately 400 hectares of estate-owned or cellar-controlled vineyards, some with vines more than 100 years in age.

Tasting notes
Rich color. Very pleasant on the nose, subtle and elegant, complex, with aromas of fine wood, ripe fruit, coffee. Thick, unctuous and round on the palate with solid structure and juicy tannins. The second nose shows spiced nuances and black ripe fruit aromas.

Winemaking and aging

Upon entering the bodega, bunches undergo a manual selection and then individual grapes are sorted based on their weight. Following this double selection process, they are de-stemmed and crushed before undergoing fermentation and then aceration in stainless steel tanks for a total of 8 days, obtaining better color extraction as well as much more complex and tannic wines, suitable for prolonged aging.
After its primary fermentation, the wine is placed in barrels where it undergoes malolactic fermentation and is aged for 18 months in French (70%) and American (30%) oak barrels, then aged minimum 18 months in bottle before release.
Total acidity: 5 g./l. Volatile acidity: 0,6 g./l. PH: 3,59 Free SO2: 25 mg./l. Residual sugar: 1,9 g./l.


Excellent with red or white meats, all types of game, roasts, oily fish, rice with meat and cheese. Within Rioja cuisine it is perfection accompanying peppers stuffed with cod, artichokes with ham, migas pastoriles and trotters

Reviews:

"2013 was the year in which Juan Luis Cañas and his team started to use a little less oak on his wines, to good effect in my view. This assemblage of Tempranillo with 5% Graciano is still a modern style, with 20% new wood, but it's spicy, refreshing and nuanced with some grip on the finish. 2019-23"
- - TIM ATKIN RIOJA 2019 SPECIAL REPORT, February 2019, 92 pts

   "(aged for 18 months in 70% French and 30% American oak barrels, all new) Limpid ruby. Expressive red and dark berry preserve aromas, along with suggestions of vanilla, cola and roasted coffee. Round, sweet and open-knit, offering juicy raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors that firm up steadily on the back half. Dusty tannins add grip to a long, focused finish that leaves bitter cherry and dark chocolate notes behind. - Josh Raynolds"
