Bold red wines command notice. Very full, dark fruits like blackberry are their signature, as well as firm tannins. Earth, coffee, tobacco, and black pepper tones help these wines stand out from the crowd.

Food Pairing and Preparation: These original red meat wines call for steak, lamb, venison, buffalo or goat especially with grilling or charring. Savory soups, stews, and meat pies. Roasts and gamier fowl like duck. Strong flavored cured meats and hard, flavorful cheeses. Sauces of tomato, pepper, mushrooms and black truffle along with anything barbequed add context. Even dark chocolate will be enhanced by these wines.

  • La Antigua Clásico Rioja Reserva ORGANIC

  • From the cooler, northern facing slopes of the Sierra de La Demanda, the grapes here come entirely from vines planted between 1940-1955 at the high elevation of almost 2300ft.  They ripen later, but with a juice that is so concentrated and expressive.  Then, aged for 2 years in stainless steel followed by 4 years in a combination of French and American oak, this wine has dark fruit flavors, strong tannins, a long finish, and a depth that is truly expressive.  Enjoy with grilled red meats, barbecue, or a seasoned steak medium rare.

    Region: Rioja, Spain 

    Variety: 60% Garnacha, 30% Tempranillo,10% Graciano
