Bodegas Lezaun Tinto Navarra 2016
is currently backordered. You may still purchase it now but we won't be able to ship it until it becomes available again.
Variety: Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault
Estate: Located in the northern Navarran sub-region of Tierra de Estella, Lezaun is an old family estate dating back to 1780. At just 47 acres of organic vineyards, this is a relatively small property to be producing such well-priced Tinto, but Raúl Lezaun prefers making smaller batches of great wine than having to send unusable surplus to co-ops. This vintage is made from a blend of hand-picked Tempranillo and Garnacha, with just a smidgen of Merlot, that is fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts. The Tinto is bottled young and is ready to enjoy right now.
Tasting Notes : Medium-bodied, dry. Rustic and spicy, with plush red fruit and formidable complexity on the finish. The is a lot of wine for the money. Pair with burgers, shish kebab, and grilled skirt steak.
