Tasting Notes

"Balsamic, tar, black raspberries, dark cherries and vanilla are all in play. I love the tannins here, which are steely and finely woven with clearly defined edges. Medium-bodied and medium-chewy on the finish. Drink now or hold."

The Producer

Bodegas Palacio

Based in the lower part of Laguardia (Rioja Alavesa) since 1894, Bodegas Palacio is one of the ancient jewels of the Denomination. With brands such as Castillo de Rioja and Glorioso dating from the 20th century, it boasts a rich history full of anecdotes and prominent events.

Founder Cosme Palacio rented a winery in the Duero area to procure wine when phylloxera devastaded Rioja. That winery was Vega Sicilia and the winemaker who travelled there to oversee production was Txomin Garramiola, a Riojan who settled in the region and laid the foundations of what today is the legendary Único.
