Rioja Trade Show Chicago September 8, 2014

A beautiful day at the Homestead Restaurant in Chicago for the Rioja Trade Wine show.  I had ths the pleasure of pouring wines from the El Coto winery.  Here are the delicious, well received selections I offered and some of the comments given by the tasters.
2013 El Coto Rioja Blanco – ” This could be my new sipping wine”  “Love the freshness!” “A perfect example of an Rioja Blanco”.
2013 El Coto Rioja Rosado – “I typically do not like rosé wine, but this is absolutely wonderful!”  “So fruity, yet some herbal notes…love it!”  “Where can I buy this?”
2010 El Coto Rioja Crianza- “I am trying to learn to like red wines.  This is really making me become a believer.”  “This is very smooth and such a great fruity nose.” “Very balanced, nice body, love the mouth feel.”
2008 Coto de Imaz Rioja Reserva- “This is beautiful!” “It makes my mouth sing…maybe dance some too!” “I found my favorite of the night!”
