Mario Ruiz-Clavijo's wines are considered "vinos de author," which technically means they don't follow regular DO rules, but in spirit they are wines meant to express creative freedom, a personal statement straight from the heart of the winemaker. I like to think of them in a more literary sense, as wines with a unique voice, like poetry or a post-modern novel. In this case Mario's intention was to make wines expressing the unique terroir of some of the top plots from his family's winery in Rioja. This bottling is a blend of 85% Tempranillo 15% Graciano and aged in oak for 12 months. The oak is subtle, however, mostly you'll find ripe blackberry, raspberry, & rose petals. It's medium bodied, with nice acidity, and smooth tannins, an all around enjoyable wine to curl up on the couch with and sip while reading Don Quixote.
