  • Food Pairing Roast leg of lamb
  • Price $19.95

For a red that spent 18 months in oak and 20 months in bottle before release, this is exceptionally fresh Rioja. Medium-full-bodied and very dry, with a grainy texture, it delivers chewy cherry and notes of coconut, spice and old wood. Great for the price. Decant it if you can and introduce it to roast leg of lamb; $24.99 in B.C., various prices in Alberta, $23.99 in Manitoba, $20.95 in Quebec.
