Señorío De San Vicente Rioja San Vicente 2016
Senorio De San Vicente Rioja San Vicente 2016 has a promising nose of wood smoke, spices, lavender and blackberry fruit. Dense, rich and concentrated on the palate, with plenty of succulent, savoury fruit and serious depth. A little more approachable than the previous vintage, but it will still evolve and drink well for at least another 8-10 years.

Señorío De San Vicente is one of several outstanding estates owned and operated by the Eguren family. San Vicente is made from 100% Tempranillo Peludo, a clone known for its tiny berries and for its exceptional aromatic notes. The grapes are sourced from a single vineyard and the wine typically spends 20 months in new, mostly French oak. First planted in 1985, the Finca La Canoca vineyard in San Vicente de la Sonsierra is now reaching maturity and it is showing all of the quality we have come to expect from the wines of Marcos Eguren.
