WineListAwards called the 2017 Viña Pomal
"The Rioja of the Year"
A single varietal Tempranillo characterised by traditional winemaking techniques: after destemming and crushing, fermentation takes place.
The wine is macerated for 2 weeks, giving it a smooth, structure with great fruit.
Finally, it spends 12 months in American oak barrels and at least 6 months in bottle. "Viña Pomal is one of Spain's most exceptional and traditional wines, which has remained faithful to the classic style of authentic Rioja."
If you shop @MetroWines, you know Viña Pomal has been a staple on our shelves.
But the price, through the various distributors has gone up and down.

The wine world has lost a true legend. Jim Clendenen, a pioneer in his industry is gone but will never be forgotten, for he has left a lasting impression for generations of winemakers and wine professionals. In the wine industry, being considered "old school" in Italy, France or Greece is considered cool and hip, yet old school in California is considered passé or dated. This may have to do with how young the California wine scene is in comparison to some countries that date back to 6000 B.C. Either way, Jim was considered "old school", well at least in the time that I knew him. He championed the notion of being able to enjoy a glass of wine for lunch "without getting drunk".
