Bodegas Palacio Rioja Cosme Palacio Reserva 2015
Other Reds | Spain
Arguably Rioja’s first “modern-styled” Tempranillo wine, proprietor Cosme Palacio teamed up with super-consultant, Michel Rolland (Harlan, Bryant, and Ausone to name a few), in the late 80s to reinvent the brand, which dates back to 1899. It’s got all the no-holds-barred winemaking we love, with French oak (instead of American), a somewhat riper/richer style, and complex, layered flavors. YOU WILL LOVE IT! At this price, it’s a wild steal that crushes many a competitor, even in the $100+ category. $28??!!
Agreed! Blueberries, cigar box, flowers, and even a touch of mocha, too, to our palates, absolutely delicious and fine. Wow! Don’t forget free shipping on 4 or more! First come, first served…!
