Wine Spectator: This red shows focus and good density, with ripe fruit flavors of black cherry and plum accented with toast and coffee, all supported by well-integrated tannins. Leafy and minerally accents linger on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 10,000 cases imported.
A Rioja with a Contemporary Twist! Vina 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 liquorice and faint undertones of spice, Zaco is the ultimate modern expression of Rioja. Zaco is not constrained by the rules of the traditional aging process. It is neither a Crianza nor a Reserva. Zaco is simply ready when award-winning international winemaker Diego Pinilla believes the wine is reaching its full potential. Every year Diego will identify the perfect moment to bottle Zaco. The back label on the wine says it all. "A wine with just one guideline: to be Rioja."
