Our favorite dark night is back. This wine’s color is inky and dark with violet purple hues along the edge. It has bold fragrances of ripe plums, violet blossoms, fresh blackberries and dark chocolate with orange essence. The balanced natural acidity tames the juicy sweetness and reveals that this wine will continue to age beautifully. The luscious flavors of forest fruit and cocoa end with a hint of orange zest. The soft tannins hiding in the background emerge with full force and remind you why Graciano is an essential part of the best Spanish Riojas. Liz suggests pairing this wine with seared duck breast with a honey, orange and thyme glaze.
