Spain’s award-winning Chavarri family have lived and breathed superior-quality Rioja wine since 1882. Their estate vineyards (in Rioja’s premium district of Alavesa) boast rich limestone soil, higher elevation and ancient Tempranillo vines with painfully low yields – it’s everything you need to produce special wines of real character. (You’ll taste what we mean.)

This joven or tinto release is always a big favorite with our regular customers – it’s mellow and fruit rich, with just enough subtle, spicy complexity to complement a variety of dishes, making it a terrifically versatile red to have on hand.

In the glass, it shows a lovely mid-ruby color. Aromas and flavors of red and black fruit (ripe plum and juicy raspberry) meet notes of sweet vanilla oak and clove. It’s a silky-smooth partner for traditional Spanish favorites (hearty paella and grilled lamb), or classic American meals (burgers, casseroles and more).
