Description

Marquis Tasting Note:

"A serious and beautifully crafted Rioja. Dark ruby with a sublime nose of black currant, kirsch, espresso and chocolate. The flavors of black currant and tobacco are followed by a smooth tannic progression into a long, lingering and fulfilling finish.  Complex, satisfying, and oh so velvety, this wine is year in and year out on my perennial favourites."

 - John Clerides, Owner of Marquis Wine Cellars

Critical Acclaim:

Abel Mendoza has never used the official categorization of wines (Crianza, Reserva, etc.), so the wine sometimes people called Crianza is simply 2012 Jarrarte. This is a Tempranillo from diverse vineyards in the San Vicente zone that matured in French oak barrels. It has a surprisingly perfumed nose with notes of flowers, orange peel and cherries in liqueur, fresher than what they expected in such warm and dry vintage. There are some spicy flavors and a fine texture, with moderate acidity and a nice mouthfeel that makes it very approachable and easy to drink. 5,510 bottles produced.
