2005 LAN Rioja Gran Reserva, Spain

1127513x
This 2005 Gran Reserva Rioja was the top pick of Irene Virbila, writing in The LA Times this week.

She said: “Hard to believe, but the 2005 is the latest release of the LAN Gran Reserva Rioja works on a different time scale than the rest of the wine world, releasing its reds only when they’re ready to drink. The 2005, mostly Tempranillo with just 10% each Mazuelo and Garnacha, still tastes youthful.

“Such a pretty wine with notes of cherry, spice and earth — and a pleasant rasp of tannin. Perfect for a plate of jamón ibérico and chorizo.”

Virbila recommended pairing this wine with prosciutto or Serrano ham, beans with chorizo, baby lamb chops.

Price: $20
