The 2008 Mirto is sourced from 70-year vines in Haro, Villaba and San Vicente. It is sorted by hand, fermented in French oak for 28 months with no racking. It has a clean, very pure bouquet with plush dark cherry, cassis and blueberry fruit laced with orange blossom. The oak is neatly encased in the fruit profile. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannins, good acidity and balance. There is lovely caressing dark plum and cassis fruit towards the composed finish that might have been over-powering and ostentatious in other hands. This is a well-crafted modern style Rioja. Drink now-2018.”,,,

Coffee, mocha, char and roasted black-fruit aromas control the bouquet on this modern Rioja. Lemony acidity provides lift to the palate, which has a raw, abrasive, tannic bite. Flavors of toast, chocolate, lemon rind and black fruits finish similarly, with a chewy texture. Drink through 2018.

Food pairing
Ideal serving temperature between 18 - 19 C (64,4 -66,2 F).A marvellous companion to vegetable and smoked flavours, such as those of wild mushrooms and truffles. Combines nicely with subtly spiced dishes and unsmoked, medium-cured soft cheeses.
