MIRTO de Ramón Bilbao was elected in 2006 as "Best World Tempranillo". The signature wine of Bodegas Ramon Bilbao, collect best practices and traditional knowledge accumulated over generations in the treatment of grapes, obtained from the oldest vineyards of the winery farms. Rich in nuance and very high taste, most prestigious wine from Haro, La Rioja.
Note: Successful aging until 2019.
Sommelier recommendation: A marvellous companion to vegetable and smoked flavours, such as those of wild mushrooms and truffles. Combines nicely with subtly spiced dishes and unsmoked, medium-cured soft cheeses.
Neal Martin´s Tasting Note for 2008: The 2008 Mirto is sourced from 70-year vines in Haro, Villaba and San Vicente. It is sorted by hand, fermented in French oak for 28 months with no racking. It has a clean, very pure bouquet with plush dark cherry, cassis and blueberry fruit laced with orange blossom. The oak is neatly encased in the fruit profile. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannins, good acidity and balance. There is lovely caressing dark plum and cassis fruit towards the composed finish that might have been over-powering and ostentatious in other hands. This is a well-crafted modern style Rioja.
