From Rioja, Izadi is medium-bodied, 100% Tempranillo aged 14 months in American and French oak. This one pairs with a roast of lamb studded with garlic, crusted with rosemary and blue cheese. Full-bodied Spanish red wine with notes of cigar box and dark berries with spice.

Food pairings: lamb chop casserole, stuffed breast of veal, roast chicken.

Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This full bodied red wine from Spain is 100% Tempranillo - plum, cherry, raspberry, with a touch of subtle earthiness. Lovely on its own or with light tapas dishes. Drink now.
Izadi Reserva (2012) is a deep red Rioja made from that wine region's iconic Tempranillo wine grape. The wine is full-bodied with lush, ripe red cherries, plums and soft tannins and soft spice finish. This is a lovely drink-now Tempranillo. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
