Staff Pick Notes

Here is a little introduction to Spanish wine, specifically Rioja wine aging: Crianza requires a minimum of 2 years total, at least a year in oak. Reserva requires a minimum of 3 years total, at least 1 year in oak and 6 months in bottle. Gran Reserva requires a minimum 5 years total, at least 2 years in oak and at least 3 years in bottle. Señorío de P. Peciña Crianza, Bodegas Hermanos Peciña is young and vibrant, but still earthy and mature. It is organically grown, hand-harvested, and offers great harmony and balance. It pairs especially well with any tapas. I opted for some Manchego cheese, Jamón Serrano, and croquetas.

Tempranillo is the star of the red wines here, though its expression can vary wildly from producer to producer. Traditionally-styled Riojas tend to be subtle and soft, and often have high levels of acidity to ensure their survival...
