Artadi Rioja Vina El Pison 2008

Artadi Rioja Vina El Pison 750ml 2008      
Sku: 1659985*

Fashioned from a vineyard planted in 1931 on pure limestone, this wine is outrageously rich complex, and profound. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of sweet black fruits, vanilla, flowers, and minerals. There are layers of fruit, great flavor, extraction, unbelievable finesse, complexity and elegance. The finish lasts for nearly a minute. Full-bodied and super-concentrated.

The 2008 Vina el Pison comes from a single vineyard planted in 1945 on pure limestone. It is the epitome of elegance with a sensual bouquet, a silky texture, already complex flavors, and a lengthy, pure finish. It will offer at least a 20 year lifespan, just long enough for the 2009 to be hitting its stride. In addition to the two new releases listed above, I received samples of the various components of the 2009 Pagos Viejos. Inky purple, dense and rich, it will surely be a contender for a perfect score. But that is a story for next year.
