Artillero 2014 RiojaTabula Rasa
From a 100+ year old vineyard in Rioja comes this old-vine Tempranillo. The 2014 vintage is blended with a touch of Viura for lightness, but all of the elegant brambly dark fruit, spice, and leather one would want is still very much present. Intense & lively!
The former owner of this vineyard used to be a gunner in the civil war. Artillero (Spanish for gunner) became his nickname. Grateful for the great care he took of the vineyard, now 99-year old, Oxer decided to name both the plot and the wine after him.
