Lot 272 2009 Rioja “Vendimmia Seleccionada” (Vintage Selection) is a great place to pick back up where we left off with our French releases earlier this year. 100% Tempranillo grown on terraces up off the plains of Rioja, the Vintage Selection moniker denotes the better terroir from which this wine hails. Produced in a modern style that seeks to balance authenticity with accessibility, Lot 272 seamlessly combines the earthy qualities of old school Rioja with the faceted fruit of modern viticulture and deftly deployed oak. And yes, while this is a Rioja even a Napa Cabernet lover will enjoy, it is not to be mistaken with the over-ripe, over-oaked Spanish wines that are now attacking our borders.
