Tasting Notes

Arturo and Kike (Artuke, get it?) Miguel Blanco are amongst a new wave of younger Rioja producers, producing wines from great quality, organically farmed vineyards, very carefully considering oak usage (in this case barrels are 1-4 year old, nothing new) and concerned less with the aging conventions (Crianza, Reserva, Gran Reserva) of the past, more with forging a new path for original, village and vineyard defined wines for the future. This example is from 30-90 year old Tempranillo (90%) and Graciano (10%) from Abalos.

    "In grapes we trust" is the motto of Rioja n' Roll - the new school of young winemakers in Rioja of which Artuke are a part. Their philosophy is to make wine with respect for origin and terroir, and celebrate the Rioja wine region, but without the rigidity of past rules. The result is a wine that has a burst of energy from start to finish. Starting with a pretty, vibrant nose, the wine continues to deliver no shortage of fresh, juicy flavors of black cherry and herbs. This is just a totally enjoyable drinker. Super recommended!
