Natalie's Score: 89/100

From the Rioja wine region, the 2012 Burgo Viejo Licenciado Reserva has matured well. Deep garnet in the glass with a toasty, cherry wine nose. There is still good acidity on this wine with a long red plum/cherry finish. Sweet mocha and chocolate on the nose from oak aging with some sweet blackberry on the palate. Smooth. Pair with lamb.

Food pairings: grilled steak, pork chops, lamb.

Licenciado Reserva 2012 750 is a dark, juicy 100% Tempranillo Rioja with ripe blackberry, blueberry fruit flavours on the palate. Nice mocha finish on this velvety Rioja.- Community Wine Reviews
