2016 Rioja Crianza "Olagosa" (Perica, Bodegas)
Bodegas Perica, "Olagosa" Crianza, Rioja, Spain 201688% Tempranillo, 8% Garnacha, 4% Mazuelo SOFT CINNAMON, LUSH BAKED BLACKBERRY, TOASTY FINISH David Garcia, aka "Perica" a nickname from his grandpa, is responsible for maintaining old Rioja traditions and keeping his family estate at the peak of Rioja quality. This is the oldest family-run Bodega in San Asensio and we love all their wines. With the rich Tempranillo this vintage, he still coaxes Pinot Noir-like elegance, and adds the complexity of Garnacha and Mazuelo. This Crianza (aged) Rioja struts its stuff from the moment you open the bottle. Traditional American oak used. Serving Suggestion: Great with pork tenderloin marinated in garlic, scallions, olive oil and smoky Spanish paprika, then grilled medium rare.
