La Vendimia, Translated as "harvest" in Spanish, represents the quality potential of Spanish jovens, or young wines. Made by the famed Spanish winemaker, Alvaro Palacios, La Vendimia is a blend of two of Spain's original star varieties, Garnacha and Tempranillo. Full of bright red fruit with ripe undertones of blackberry jam, fresh plums and hints of Mediterranean country herbs, this wine is greaceful and harmonious. Meant to drink now throught the next four years, this wine can also be served slightly chilled and is the perfect accompaniment to any dish.
The garnet-colored 2007 La Vendimia is an equal blend of Garnacha and Tempranillo aged for four months in used French and American oak. It has an alluring nose of cherry, cassis, and cedar leading to an easy-going, flavorful Rioja that finishes with no hard edges. It will provide pleasure over the next four years.
