2009 Sotorrondero

2009 Jimenez Landi Sotorrondero....$19.99
The 2009 Sotorrondero was produced from some of Bodegas Jimenez Landi’s younger vines. It is a blend of 85% Syrah and 15% Garnacha aged for 10 months in 300 and 500-liter French oak. Smoked meat, game, and wild black and blue fruit aromas jump from the glass of this Cote-Rotie look-alike. Plush bordering on opulent, this sensual beauty can be enjoyed now and should continue to drink well for another 6-8 years. 
Daniel Jimenez Landi is one of Spain’s new star vignerons.

Rated 92/100 The Wine Advocate
