Vina Zaco 2010 Rioja, Bodegas Bilbainas
2006 Vina Zaco was chosen by Wine Spectator as one of their Top 100 Wines of 2009. Rioja Vina Zaco from Bodegas Bilbainas is a fruit-forward Tempranillo with just enough oak aging to add intriguing notes of complex spice and vanilla. 100% Tempranillo carefully vinified to bring out the rich fruit. A short cold-maceration is followed by a slow, cooler than normal fermentation with skin contact for a full two weeks to extract as much flavor and color as possible. Nine month in French and American oak followed for a complex intermingling of flavors both spicy and succulent. Wine Spectator scored this 2010 90 points saying "This red shows focus and good density, with ripe fruit flavors of black cherry and plum accented with toast and coffee, all supported by well-integrated tannins. Leafy and minerally accents linger on the finish. Drink now through 2016." This one could be headed for the top 100 list once again. A great value!

    Comments about Vina Zaco 2010 Rioja, Bodegas Bilbainas:

    This value Rioja has a beautiful combo of new world fruit and old world nuances. Blackberry, cherry and licorice aromas are surrounded by subtle earthy and cigar box notes. Its soft and smooth on the palate but has some firmness to it as well. For this price it has to be one of the best everyday Riojas around.

    • Pairs Well With:
    • Beef, Game

      This is by far the best Rioja I have tried. It is big enough to hold up to spicy Mexican food but also goes well with other meals.
