Sierra Cantabria 2007 Rioja

From San Vicente De La Sonsierra comes this luscious blend of Tempranillo and Graciano grapes.

Deep ruby colors preview aromas of ripe cherries, oak, raspberries, roses and violets.

While on the palate up front are more cherries and roses, plum and black pepper on the mid-palate with figs and licorice on the back of the tongue. Vibrant finish with lively tannins.

This worked perfectly with a medium rare cheddar cheeseburger at Danny Browns in Forest Hills.
