    The 2011 Vina Zaco changed labels and profile to a more modern style a few years ago and displays a darker shade of cherry color, ripe notes of red and black berries, flowers and a meaty palate where the wood is perfectly integrated with the fruit, which finally feels more classical than what the label makes you think. It is very good value. Drink 2014-2017.

    Facts

    Alcohol: 14%

    Barrel Type: Aged in American and French oak until the winemaker deems optimal.

    Viña Zaco is the rebellious new Rioja from Bodegas Bilbainas - a Rioja with a contemporary twist. Zaco takes its name from one of the oldest vineyards in Bodegas Bilbainas in the Rioja Alta. But that's where Zaco's links with the past begin and end. With its abundance of fresh red berries, notes of licorice and faint undertones of spice, Zaco is the ultimate modern expression of Rioja.

    Tasting Notes

    An intense, bright cherry color with violet hues. A bouquet of wild flowers, such as myrtle and violets, on the nose. Swirling the glass releases notes of ripe red fruits. Lively and intense. Full-bodied and structured with rounded tannins; an abundance of red fruits that blend with the toasted wood notes.
