Coto de Imaz Gran Reserva 2016

Coto de Imaz has a brilliant ruby color, with russet tones. It is mature and elegant, its aromatic richness is ever-changing and subtle, it becomes more apparent as the wine breathes. This bottle has notes of toast and coconut followed by tertiary aromas of leather, wet earth and red fruit and dried fruit. It has a medium to full body with succulent tannins that is round and silky. The aftertaste is persistent and complex. Ideal accompaniment for roast suckling lamb, game, or red meat.


A blend of Tempranillo and Graciano. The wine is produced in stainless steel tanks for 21-30 days, with just enough maceration to achieve
the balance between fruit and extract. The wine has been aged in American and French oak barrels for a minimum of 24 months, followed by a minimum of 36 months of refining in the bottle.

Grainy American oak aromas of vanilla mixed with lightly spiced red fruit notes form a classic Rioja nose. A tight palate with wiry acidity is pointy as it delivers flavors of vanilla, dill, plum, red currant and wood spice. Oak is the prime player on the finish. Drink through 2023.
