Kathryn Harding's Picks

Fall nights require smooth rich reds and the Vina Santurnia Reserva works perfectly. Made predominantly of Tempranillo this organic wine from Rioja is aged in a combination of 70% American & 30% French oak for 24 months. Don’t be scared of the long oak aging the barrels are 5-8 years old so they make the wine smoother, not oakier. The nose is overflowing with cherry, dried fruit and soft vanilla, it kept on smelling it all the way to the last drop. The palate is full of red fruit, subtle spice with a finish that is smooth enough to enjoy without having to overthink it. Enjoy as the nights get darker and the Netflix shows get longer!
