Rioja Mirto Ramón Bilbao 2012
Bodegas Ramón Bilbao was founded in 1924 by Ramón Bilbao Murga in Haro. He was an experienced wine trader and and a pioneer in the art of ageing. The winery stayed family owned until 1966, when Ramón Bilbao Pozo, last of the descendants, died.
Bright and very intense red purple colour. The aromas are powerful, well developed and sophisticated with memories of tobacco, cassis, chocolate coating and cedar wood. It”s mouthfeel is filled with perfume added with sensations of blackcurrants, plums, chocolate powder and fallen leaves, with a juicy depth and fresh concentration. Aged in new French oak, it’s the most international of the Ramón Bilbao wines: smooth, polished and
complex, with lots of perfume, structure and toast and a smoky, savoury finish.
FOOD MATCHING NOTE
A marvellous companion to vegetable and smoked flavors,such as those of wild mushrooms and truffles.Combines nicely with subtly spiced dishes and unsmoked, medium-cured soft cheeses.
