Arbanta Rioja "Llorens" 2008

My next selection by the glass at The Ten Bells was this Tempranillo from Spain's Rioja region which perfectly offset the saltiness of a chorizo tapas plate. A small production, (non-certified) organic wine, fermented in stainless steel, It is very balanced with aromas of dried flowers, spices, mineral and cigar box, followed by flavors of perfumed cherries, and a good solid structure.
