Baron De Lajoyosa Gran Reserva Carinena 2005 Baron De Lajoyosa Gran Reserva Carinena 2005

Old-school Spanish red wine here priced at a pretty crazy old-fashioned level given the $25 release price.  The Marin family founded the winery in 1903 and farm old vines at 600 meters in Cariñena, about 2 hours southeast of Rioja.  It’s traditional here to grow mixtures of grapes in each vineyard, and this is a very traditional 50% Garnacha, 30% Tempranillo and 10% Cariñena plus a bit of modern Cabernet Sauvignon.  Long aging in barrel followed by plenty of bottle time have brought this 12 year-old red to the peak of mellow maturity.

Generous aromas of spice, earth, leather, dark cherry and roasted berry get a touch of complexity from hints of sweet tobacco.  On the palate it’s medium-bodied but richly flavored with dark raspberry, baked strawberry, leather and baker’s chocolate flavors.  The finish is long and smooth and complex with sweet cherry and strawberry fruit framed by notions of tobacco, chocolate and spice.  Fully ready now (and best over the next couple of years), this will shine with grilled lamb or mellow beef dishes.
