Bodegas Ramón Bilbao Reserva 2015
90% Rioja Tempranillo. 10% Mazuelo and Graciano.
Maroon-coloured, and of medium-high intensity, this wine is clean and brilliant, and produces tears on the glass.
It is high intensity in nose, with notes of dark fruit, balsamics, sweet spices, toffee and cocoa.
In mouth it has a long finish, is intense and structured, with rounded and mature tannins and good alcohol integration.
The retronasal aroma again is of black fruit and sweet spices.
In short, it is a balanced, harmonious wine. In its ongoing evolution, it is ready to drink, but has great aging potential.
Drinking temperature: between 17ºC and 18ºC. It is ideal for pairing with traditional dishes such as red meat, game and cured cheese.
