Vinedos de Paganos El Puntido Rioja 2010
|Brand||Vinedos de Paganos|
This is ripe and pure on the nose, with aromas of raisin, cherry and earth. The palate is full but not heavy, while flavors of cherry and blackberry run deep in front of a second wave of pepper and spice. Only on the finish does overt oak show up, so give this a few years and drink from 2016 through 2022.
This savory red offers licorice, tobacco and loam notes that frame a core of plum fruit. The firm tannins are well-integrated, balanced with fresh acidity. Subtle and harmonious. Drink now through 2020.
