He usually lives in the forest, and apart from charcoal-making, eating and drinking are his only occupation. Therefore, he must be a profound connoisseur of Rioja wines. Although the children’s wish lists contain other desires, Riojas are the measure of all things in the adult’s order forms. The Ramón Bilbao “Edition Limitada” Crianza is almost charcoal-raven black (like a dirty charcoal burner).

lush, aromatic, seductive
Black cherries, red berries, vanilla, cinnamon and toast play their magic tricks on your nose. A feast for the senses takes its course, and the lush aromas surrounding the dark cherry make your palate tremble. This wine is much too seductive to let the Advent season pass in silent melancholy.
