Bodegas Tarón is the northernmost winery in Rioja; situated in Rioja Alta under the Cantabrian Mountains. It is the collaboration of four small towns in the Rioja Alta region; Cuzcurrita de Rio Tirón, Sajazarra, Villaseca and Tirgo. These four winemaking towns decided that as they share not only the landscape but their culture too, they would benefit from pooling together their vineyards and knowledge to create one Bodega focussed on creating high quality Rioja’s. Bodegas Tarón has 700 hectares of vineyards spread over more than 1000 small plots. Some of the oldest vines are over 100 years old which go into making their wine. The aim was to start an exciting project in order to share what they do best – the wine they make – with the world.
A dark cherry red with garnet reflections. The bouquet is characterized by ripe fruit flavors and notes of fruit liqueur, cocoa beans and sweet spices. The bouquet is a bit reductive and it shows clear, but harmoniously integrated wood notes. The palate shows immense power and elegance that develop at the same time, rounded off by soft, velvety tannins and a long finish.
