Tasting Notes

Located in Cuzcurrita de Rio Tirón (in La Rioja Alta), Bodegas Tobía (pronounced toe-BEE-ya) is an artisanal winery owned and operated by one of Spain’s top winemakers, Oscar Tobía. Oscar holds a Master’s degree in Oenology and Viticulture and is considered part of Rioja’s new generation of winemakers who combine professionalism, the spirit to embrace regional traditions, and the best of what new technology can offer.
Family-owned vineyards constitute 30 hectares, with a further 55 hectares coming from controlled local vineyards. Vineyards are planted to Tempranillo (73%), Garnacha (15%), Viura (8%), and Malvasia (3%). Production of the winery began in 1995.

Total production is approximately 500,000 bottles from a new state-of-the-art winery. In the cellar there are approximately 1,500 oak barrels – American (650), French (700), and Hungarian (150).

The wine is a blend of 80% Tempranillo (from vineyards planted in the 1960's and 70's), 11% Graciano, and 9% Garnacha (from vineyards planted in 1930). Whole-berry, alcoholic fermentation was in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks, while malolactic fermentation was initiated in oak barrels. The final wine is aged in French and American oak barrels (2nd and 3rd use) for 18 months before bottling, unfiltered.

Our tasting note: Deep garnet core, with a slight purple rim. Ripe, dark fruit aromas – Bing cherry, plum, and wild raspberry – with well-integrated vanilla oak notes, and a touch of dark chocolate, and nutmeg on the finish. Balanced, medium- to full-bodied, with velvety smooth tannins, balancing acidity, and a nice, persistent finish. 14% alc./vol.

Food match: Will pair well with grilled meats, including lamb dishes.
