Star's Wine of the Week
Marques del la concordia crianza rioja 2007
This well aged and ready to drink wine is garnet in color with a clean nose with aromas of blackberry, cassis, plums, smoke and a hint of wood. This dry red from Spain is well balanced with medium tannins, minerality and acidity. The palate is consistent with the nose with sweet red and black fruit followed by drying tannins and a hint of vanilla and wood. I found that the Marques went very well with leg of lamb,Couscous and broccoli.
