Coming off the 2010 vintage, which was #1 on the Wine Spectator top 100 list of 2020, the 2011 is another stellar wine that embodies everything that the finest Rioja has to offer.
Unlike many other iconic wines that will need ample time in the cellar, this wine is 12 years old on release. It is ready to drink and can age gracefully for another 10-15 years.

An infinite and complex range of aromas define this Castillo Ygay 2011 that evokes aromas of ripe cherry, blueberries and cassis with refined touches of scrubland, Mediterranean herbs, black pepper, cloves and mocha. Balance defines this wine vintage after vintage; lively on the palate as well as enveloping and harmonious. With silky tannins and a long, elegant finish.
Blend: 84% Tempranillo,16% Mazuelo
Extremely well-mannered, traditional character to this, showing layer upon layer of savory complexity on the nose, with iron, dried meat, tobacco, balsamic fruit, dried red berries, orange peel, leather and dried mushrooms. A medium-to full-bodied, linear and zesty Rioja that’s full of nuanced flavors that linger through the very long, savory finish. Floral, too. Yet, it remains bright and precise. Tempranillo with 16% mazuelo.
