Hermanos Hernaiz 'Finca La Emperatriz' Reserva, Rioja DOCa, Spain 2014
A blend of Tempranillo with 3% Garnacha, 2% Viura and 1% Graciano fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts matured in 70% American and 30% French oak barrels for 22 months. It was my favorite from the selection I tasted. I found it serious, balanced and nicely integrated, with the oak neatly folded into the fruit, subtle and elegant. It's medium-bodied with good freshness and very fine tannins.
