Natalie's Score: 93/100

Hermanos Hernáiz Finca La Emperatriz 2017 is a dry, full-bodied red wine blend of 76% Tempranillo, 22% Garnacha and 2% Viura with grapes sourced from the winery's vineyard in the Baños de Rioja. Fresh and fragrant with ripe dark berry, cassis, red berries and well-integrated oak spice elegant and vibrant on the palate. Tannins are grippy. Nice now, but better in 2024 when this lovely Rioja red will begin to show its best. Cellar to 2030.

Tinto food pairings: roast duck, pork tenderloin, beef prime ribs.

Delightful Duck Wine
