Free Delivery with Orders over £100
Senorio De San Vicente Rioja San Vicente 2006 is wonderfully balanced with ripe, black fruits underpinned by notes of spice, lead pencil and toast. On the palate it is mouthfilling and intense, yet elegant and with finesse. Drinkable now, but another couple of years should see further evolution giving it a relaxed drinking window of at least ten years or so.

As with the Viñedos De Páganos El Puntido, Rioja San Vicente is a most individual wine but one that is more traditionally styled than its cousin. Fermented for 20 months in 90% French oak barriques and in 10% American oak barrels, it is a leaner, more minerally expression of Rioja that is not quite so approachable in its infancy.
From Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The 2006 Señorío De San Vicente Rioja San Vicente is a glass-coating purple/black colour offering up a brooding bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, liquorice, plum, and blackberry. Opulent and rich on the palate with layers of succulent fruit, it has 6-8 years of ageing potential and should be at its best from 2016 to 2026.
Señorío De San Vicente is one of several outstanding estates owned and operated by the Eguren family. The wine is made from 100% Tempranillo Peludo known for its tiny berries and exceptional aromatics. The grapes are sourced from a single vineyard and typically aged for 20 months in new, mostly French oak before bottling without filtration. 93 Points
