Bodegas Ramón Bilbao Gran Reserva 2011
90 % Tempranillo, 6% Graciano, 4% Mazuelo
Garnet red colour with medium to high intensity. Bright and in excellent condition. Elegant and complex nose. Aromas of ripe fruit, blackberry, plum, hints of cherry. Spicy with aromatic herbs such as rosemary, from our most outlying vineyards. There is a clear presence of select oak barrels. Hints of sweet spices, pastries and nougat combined with roasted flavours and cocoa. Long, persistent and full-bodied in the mouth. There is a crisp acidity, ensuring a long life, and tamed tannins. A wine in perfect condition which will evolve within the bottle in coming years.
Serving and food pairing: serve at between 17º C and 18º C. Perfect with red meats, cured cheeses, barbecues and game dishes.
