Izadi Rioja Reserva, Spain 2018

The driving force behind Izadi's opulent house style is the experienced Mariano Garcia, who previously made wine at Vega Secilia for some 30 years. The particular microclimate of Izadi's estate in Rioja Alavesa offers both elevation and cooling breezes courtesy of the nearby Atlantic Ocean, which facilitate sustainable viticulture and balanced ripening of fruit. The Tempranillo vines are some 45 years in age and planted in clay and limestone soils, and the wine is made in a traditional style with elevage in French and American oak barrels for 16 months.

The 2018 Izadi Reserva is an excellent value for lovers of rich and showy Rioja. The color is deep and the nose shows a balance of spice, ripe plum and berries, and subtle cocoa notes. There is still ample acidity to carry the depth of the mouthfeel and help it cut through aged cheeses and heavy entrees. A very well-rounded Rioja that hits all the marks without hitting your wallet.
