Staff Pick: 2012 Miguel Merino ‘Cantiga’ Tempranillo

Miguel Merino is the eponymously named winery in Rioja for both father and son.  They are experienced, congenial, warm, quality-focused and make terrific wines. This wine has pure and high toned fruit aromas and flavours displaying admirable minerality. A little less oaky and a little more fruit forward than many Crianzas, but generally more lively and transparent than ones made in traditional styles. Delicious!  Pair with lamb or game and enjoy!
