2007 Zuazo Gaston Vendimia Seleccionada Rioja

I haven’t had a wine from Rioja in a while, and this one seemed promising  - a blend of tempranillo and graciano at $9.99/bottle.   Spicy fruit and vanilla on the nose, a powerful, meaty midpalate and berries galore on the finish.    The juicy berries definitely linger.   There’s quite a bit of acidity as well, so this will be a great food wine.   Great complexity and longevity on the finish for the price!   I definitely want to buy this one again and try it with some spicy tapas!
