Good Morning Gentle Readers,
Now, if you want a good Spanish wine for under ten
books bucks this is your ticket. Unlike that funky 2006 Panarroz Jumilla, this is a solid wine.
El Coto's first release was 1975 and it has become the top selling wine in Spain and one of the top sellers in Europe. Coto's vineyards are in Cenicero (Rioja Alta) next to the east bank of the river Najerilla and the soil is mainly based on ferric clay. The rest of the grapes come from selected vineyard owners from the Rioja Alavesa.
Don't that just make me sound like The Man?
That's as far as I got the other night and then I tottered off to bed.
Now, three days later, I can't remember the specifics, and, of course, I didn't take any notes. Notes and me don't do that well anyway.
It's nicely done, you won't go wrong with a bottle or two.
