Ramon Bilbao Limited Edition 2011
Intense cherry red color. On the nose it shows suggestive fine-fruit aromas, floral tones, and white wood tinged with notes of well-measured ageng and touches of shrubland. On the palate it is fluid and balanced, serious, flavorful, and with spirit. It keeps a liveliness in its pleasant and persistent mouthfeel. Ideal serving temperature between 64–68 degrees F. Perfect with beef, smoked cuts, or international cuisine (sushi, Tex-Mex, curry, etc.).
100% Tempranillo. Bodegas Ramon Bilbao was founded in 1924 by Ramon Bilbao Murga, an experienced wine trader who had been selling wine since 1896 from his premises at Calle Las Cuevas in Haro. Ramon Bilbao was a forward-looking grape grower; a pioneer in the art of aging. The winery was handed down from one generation to the next until the year 1966, when Ramon Bilbao Pozo, the last of the descendants, died. In 1972, the business was converted into a corporation with new shareholders. New facilities were also built in Haro. The new company wished to continue the work of its founder, Ramon Bilbao, and concentrated on making aged wines.
