Casa La Rad Red

The Casa la Rad wines are produced from the oldest vines on the the Casa la Rad estate in Rioja Baja. The large, family-owned estate is located in the northern foothills of the Valle de Ocón, and encompasses 2,000 acres; mostly native oak forest, with 272 acres of vineyards, and 37 acres of olive groves.

The remainder of the estate is dedicated to growing almonds and cereal crops. They seek a balance between their activity and the local environment so as to sustain or improve its vitality and biodiversity.

It can be served with stews, game meat and cheese. It offers complex aromas of black cherries and currants with notes of black pepper, coffee beans, nutmeg, Indian spices and vanilla notes. Deep, concentrated and well balanced with sophisticated tanins, it also shows delicacy and freshness.
