Bodega Y Vinedos Ilurce “Rio Madre” Rioja 2010

This Rioja is a rich, mineral driven and medium bodied wine.  I found the notes that the International Wine Cellar produced are great and more eloquent than mine.  Definitely decant it for a little while, it opens up with air to show its true colors.

Rioja, Spain....
"(100% Graciano): Glass-staining purple. Highly aromatic bouquet offers dark berry and cherry compote scents along with spicecake and licorice. Chewy tannins firm and focus the wine's deep bitter cherry and cassis flavors, which are complemented by notes of cracked pepper and spices. Finishes with building sweetness, an echo of licorice and impressive persistence, especially for a wine at this price.  90 Points - International Wine Cellar, November/October 2011
