Eguren Ugarte Cosecha Rioja, Spain 2018Regular price $12.00
Cosecha is to Rioja producers what Cuvee is to the French: that year’s harvest best summarized. This Tempranillo and Garnacha blend hails from Rioja Alavesa, a hilly region with chalky limestone soils at the northernmost reaches of Rioja. This 6th generation family winery harnesses that unique terroir to create a distinct version of what the region can say through these grapes.
This is a ripe and juicy red, full of brambly fruit and layers of warm flavors from time in oak, like vanilla and toasty wood. A good full-bodied red for a chilly night!
Food Ideas: smoked brisket sandwiches, pork tamales w/adobo sauce, bean stew w/roasted red pepper aioli, spicy sausage pizza
