2005 Valsacro Dioro Rioja - Hogshead Wine Blog

hogsheadlogo"The previous vintages was produced from 40% Tempranillo, 40% Garnacha, 10% Graciano, and 10% Mazuela. The wine is aged for 12-14 months in new French oak barrels. With a short amount of air this became an interesting wine with a meaty nose containing notes of salty Old Bay seasoning. In the mouth this modern wine has salty dark red fruit and good ripeness that is balanced with acidity. Though it is still quite dense and will benefit from short-term aging, it is quite a good drink right now. 2015-2020."
