Coto de Imaz Rioja 2001 Reserva
We had a glass of this Spanish wine with dinner at the Yellow Porch in Nashville and were so impressed with it that after dinner we picked up a bottle of it at the Wine and Spirits store in Brentwood to take home with us.
We drank it tonight with a small roast leg of lamb dinner that I made (with mushroom gravy and mashed potatos and green beans) and it was remarkable, fabulous. Every sip was transcendent.
It’s a $20 bottle of wine, which is an extravagance for us, though not very expensive as good wine goes. I’m noting it here on the blog both to remember to get another bottle next time we can, and also in case you’re like I am, in a complete fog when it comes to picking out a nice bottle of wine. This is one to to pair with roast beef, roast lamb, something like that.
