This magnificent Ribera from Pico Cuadro is available at a fraction of the price of wines produced by its famous neighbours.
Pico Cuadro Vendimia Seleccionada 2009 is red ruby with a garnet hue. The nose displays notes of ripe cherry and raspberry and complex aromas of cinnamon, pink pepper, and cigar tobacco. There is a rounded intense fruit-driven flavour on the palate. It has elegant tannins balanced by mineral acidity. It has a long persistent, spicy and smoky finish and is best paired with lamb rack, stuffed turkey with chestnuts, and hard cheeses.
