Dominio de Heredia Rioja DOC 2015 $19.90

Super-smooth and masculine, like sniffing George Clooney after a wet shave, it’s all tobacco, man-sweat, saddle leather and desert dust. Wait. What was I talking about again? The wine! Yes. Tempranillo grapes were harvested, crushed, fermented, and aged for 12 months in new French oak barrels to bring on the smoky, prune, and pepper flavours in this bottle. A mid-palate burst of cherry, blackcurrant and cocoa is followed by chompy tannins. Woof.
Sip with: Minted lamb shanks.
