Rioja: New and Old Pleasures

If you like full-bodied wines that retain their fruit, turn to the wines of Rioja. A province in northern Spain, Rioja produces wines that are full-bodied and rich, regardless of their color. Most of the wines from this hallowed region are red, though they do produce some notable whites, some of which can be almost oxidative in character. Wines in Rioja fall into age classification categories. Jovens are the youngest, and are wines that are released young and are ready-to-drink upon release. These youthful wines are followed by Crianzas, which are aged for two years (one in oak), Reservas, which are aged for three years (one in oak), and Gran Reservas, which are aged five years (two in oak, three in bottle). Our selection of these wines-from Joven to Gran Reserva-runs deep, and we’re especially proud of our older vintages, like the 1947 Viña Bosconia from Lopez de Heredia. But you can find whatever style suits your taste, be it old your new. With that in mind, don’t forget the unparalleled pleasure of older Rioja.
