Vina Leizaola Rioja El Sacramento 2015  - Last Bottle

Vina Leizaola Rioja El Sacramento 2015

Sacramento represent! (sorry, your humble scribe hails from the Curtis Park/Land Park area)

Different altogether of course, but this raging bottle of awesomeness (96 POINTS Tim Atkin!!) is only the second time in 7 years we have been able to secure enough of this head-spinning Rioja --- WOW!! Crazy-luscious price…! Not for the shy!

...this is fast turning into one of the very best producers in the region” --- TA

And there is some serious, old-school competition in Rioja, to say the least --- 96 points is HUGE praise for a relative newcomer, but, trust your happy, besotted wine merchant --- one whiff, one sip of this hurricane-force wine and you will pick up EXACTLY what we are laying down!!!

Inky purple, explosively perfumed, savory as all get out, deep and dark but terrifically harmonious with its fresh juicy acid and lip-smacking personality. Truly one those “damn, where did you get THIS??” kind of things. Outrageously good. What a price we scored, too (truly, wow)!! PLEASE, if you love big Rioja, with finesse and power, PLEASE lock some of this 96-pointer in! Those who got it a couple years ago will already be WAY ahead of you! While it lasts…!

About The Producer

Viñas Leizaola invested in El Sacramento in March 2011. Leizaola hails from the northern part of the Basque Country in the province of Gipuzkoa and is the owner’s – Etienne Cordonnier – mother’s maiden name. Etienne’s ambition is two-fold: to revisit his family roots and to offer a wine that lives up to the family’s history of brokering fine wines into the sophisticated Belgian market for three generations on his father’s side.
