PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
Located in the sub-region of Rioja Baja in the town of Alfaro, Bodegas Ilurce is owned and operated by the fourth generation of the Escudero family. They have grown grapes in Rioja Baja since 1940; the current generation has 60 hectares of vineyards that are planted on the slopes of the Monte Yerga. The vines range from century-old, head-trained garnacha to high-density plantings of graciano and tempranillo planted in alluvial, limestone-heavy soils with a high abundance of stones. Located 2000 feet above sea level, the vineyards benefit from very cold winters and nights combined with warm summers – perfect conditions for fruit that deftly balances ripeness with acidity.*

The 2014 Bodegas Ilurce "Rio Madre" Rioja Graciano was fermented in a combination of stainless steel and concrete tanks, followed by 6 months of aging in seasoned oak barrels. Medium-to-full-bodied, it is just coming into its own now, with a heady mix of ripe, fresh blackberries and black raspberries, baking spices, vanilla, and tobacco on the nose and palate. Check out the press!

90 points, Vinous:
"Brilliant violet color. Intensely perfumed dark berry and floral pastille scents, along with suggestions of anise, violet, and pipe tobacco. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering sappy black and blue fruit flavors that put on weight with air. Shows very good energy and power on the long, gently tannic finish, leaving behind notes of blueberry and peppery spices." (9/15)
