Tasting Note

Pure Tempranillo from a single, high-altitude vineyard planted with 85 year-old vines. Saturated purple colour with soaring wild plum and blueberry aromas, supported by complex nuances of tobacco, chocolate and Mediterranean herbs. The taste is deep and enveloping - beautifully pure, lively fruit, with lots and lots of personality. To appreciate this now, decant at least two hours before you plan to drink it. Alternatively, lock it away for 5-10 years. Matured for 24 months in 100% French oak barrels before bottling, which gives it great complexity and subtle structure.

Press

  • Herbal and earthy aromas give the impression of a warm, Mediterranean wine. The sweetness on the palate is intense and could do with a bit of freshness, but it finishes in a creamy satisfying style. Drink 2017-20123. 91/100.

  • (1999 vintage)
    95/100 Outstanding. Ramon Bilbao was founded in 1924 in Haro and acquired by family firm Diego Zamora, a prominent spirits and liquors company in 1999 – the year that also saw the first production of Mirto from a blend of selected sites from seven villages around Haro. Each is fermented separately and winemaker Rodolfo Bastida takes samples to French coopers to match each lot with the most appropriate French oak. This wine is 100% Tempranillo and aged in French oak barrels for 20 months. Drink 20018-2024 --- Pedro Ballesteros MW: “A round, soft, balanced Rioja that has deliciously built, giving it great persistence. Great experience, very typical.” --- Sarah Jane Evans MW: “Finely made and elegant. Supple in the mouth, this is a wine that is still brightly alive with typical vivid acidity, and just a little dry on the finish. Impressively alive – this is Rioja.” --- Pierre Mansour: “Leathery notes combine with cedar portraying that this is certainly evolved. There is superb acidity to lift the fruit; it’s a stylish Rioja at its peak. Excellent traditional style with amazing oak influence.”
