A K&L Direct Import! This is a new wine for us from the Bodegas Puelles stable. "Segundo año" means second year, and refers to the fact that it is released in the wine's second year following harvest. Prior to the more widespread usage of terms such as crianza, reserva and gran reserva, wineries would indicate the age of their wine by stating segundo, cuarto, quinto or whichever was the appropriate year. Not merely a quaint throwback, however, this segundo año is delicious, with bright, crisp fruit of excellent purity and a judicious amount of barrel ageing. Jesús Puelles is one of the most talented vignerons in Rioja. Hailing from a long line of vineyard worker/owners, Puelles knows the terruño in his little slice of land in the Rioja Alta town of Abalos. All of the grapes for his red wines come from his own 26 he\ctares of vineyards on chalky clay soils, within the Rioja Alta village of Abalos.

This is a fantastic value wine that delivers a lot of flavor and pleasure. It is bright and round , medium bodied and ready to drink. Due to the vintage it has a little more fruit than the previous 2014 . It will drink well alone or with pork dishes.
