6 x Bodegas Amaren, Tempranillo Reserva, Rioja, Spain, 2010
Rich, elegant and powerful. The purity of fruit alongside the impartation of carefully selected new French oak comes alive on the palate of this delicious drop. With length for days, this beautiful wine has minerality that supports the toasty oaked character. The fresh roasted coffee character holds with it a sense of maturity, but this wine could age for another decade gracefully. Drink it now. Keep it for a special occasion. It’s up to you. But you really need to try this incredible bottle for yourself.
Bodegas Amaren, meaning ‘of my mother’ in Basque pays homage to Ángeles, the mother of Juan Luis Cañas, owner of Bodegas Luis Cañas. Ángeles dedicated her life to the winery with a fierce passion to produce only the highest quality wines. In 2009 Juan created a winery dedicated to making wines that represent the pioneering ambition of his mother. Grapes are hand harvested and vineyard plots are categorised according to quality. These wines are so good five of the seven 3-star Michelin restaurants in Spain feature them on their menus.
