Tucked away just beneath the gorgeous hilltop village of Briones in Rioja Alta, the Miguel Merino estate is making some of the most elegant wines from the area. A small and elite company with a microscopic annual production compared to the big Rioja players, Miguel Merino is focused on quality, not quantity. His style is created by blending the classic with some modern perspective on Rioja. 100% tempranillo this wine is made using a blend of some younger vines and is designed to be enjoyed earlier in in its life. Pair with lamb, steak or smoked pork.
