Bozeto de Exopto 2010 Rioja

2010 is an excellent vintage across Northern Spain and especially for the new breed of smaller grower-producers such as Exopto. Bozeto's Garnacha is fermented and aged in small temperature-controlled tanks (concrete and stainless) to capture all of the bright, jubey charms of this variety while the wood aged Tempranillo and Graciano add the smooth, spicy depth and texture. Loaded with juicy, plump blackberry fruit, cedar, spice this is as good a young Rioja as we have tasted. If you like your Rioja in a supple, layered style, marked by authentic, dry grown intensity, then you will find a lot to like in this wine. It's polished though not overworked, clean yet full of regional character. A very pure example of contemporary Rioja.
