Ramirez de la Piscina Crianza 2012, Spain

Food Pairing
Roast lamb, grilled sausages, roast ham

An honest red Rioja with a few years of maturity under its belt, yet with lively vigour as well. Aged in a combination of French and American oak for 15 months, this is medium-full-bodied, with essences of dried cherry, vanilla, smoke and cola along with a salty tang for backbone. Drink it now with roast lamb, grilled sausages or roast ham or cellar it for up to five more years. Available in Ontario.
