Vina Leizaola Rioja El Sacramento 2015
YOU. ARE. NOT. READY.
96 POINT, crazy-compelling, perfumey, brooding, mysterious sexiness! Wow! Best price on Earth by a long, LONG shot!
Crafted by a Belgian, who sold his Chateau in St. Emilion to make Rioja from this special spot. STUNNING, epiphany-level Tempranillo. COMPELLING, potent and unforgettably delicious. A drastically unexpected treat for us, especially at the price. Where to start in describing this?? JOY? Wonderment?
First off, it is NOT for the shy, demure wine lover. No, no. It’s big and lush and packed with unique flavors and SUPER-POLISHED, like supple leather. Pure, lip-smacking berry pie, macerated cherries, clove, toasted black pepper, toast, Kahlua...and it is so remarkably balanced, pure and fine it boggles the mind a bit, frankly. Color us amazingly impressed. Anyway, this price is absurd and we can’t recommend it more highly! While it lasts…! Did we mention 96 points??
