Viñestral Joven 2017

Red

Spain

Ebro River Valley

Description

Viñestral is crafted by Bodegas Marqués de Reinosa, a quality-conscious cooperative founded in the town of Autol (Rioja Baja) in 1956. The wines are great values, offering plenty of classic Rioja character in a ripe and satisfying style that is sure to please.

Tasting Notes: This youthful red offers aromas of strawberry, blackberry and cherry with light mineral and licorice notes, soft tannins, and a long, fresh finish.

Serve With: Soft and fruity enough to be enjoyed on its own, this versatile red is also excellent with tapas and a wide range of red meats.
