You should visit your butcher and get your favorite cut of meat before opening this amazing Spanish red! Produced in only exceptional vintages from Cune's oldest vines, the Imperial Gran Reserva is aged a minimum of three years in bottle before release, making it the prefect pairing for your favorite fillet. This succulent red is a traditional style Rioja, silky and mature. Dare we say, it resembles and aged Brunello, with brick red hues supported by an elegance that can only be found in wines with significant aging.
Boasting hints of tobacco, dried cherry and cedar flavors, silky smooth tannins will excite your palate and stand up to a hearty steak. The true quality of this wine translates to a very expressive nose of Asian spices, balsamic, violets, and assorted black fruits despite its decade of bottle age. Surprising acidity keeps it lively, while elegant and shockingly bright flavors accentuate a lengthy, pure finish. Enjoy over the next 9 years with your favorite meats, hard cheeses, or simply with company!
