In a nutshell: A robust but rounded and fruity Spanish red from the Rioja region.
The lowdown: From Rioja but not allowed to be called Rioja this wine is made by a group of friends who didnt want to be limited by the winemaking rules that govern Rioja but just produce good, modern wine. The name and packaging come from their love of rock'n'roll - one band in particular which you can probably guess. Lightly oaked, it's made from 30 year old Tempranillo vines with a small proportion of Graciano and Garnacha. It's got a deep ruby colour with notes of red berries and sandalwood on the nose. The palate is intense and velvety with notes of blackberries, plum, a touch of chocolate and sweet spices from three months ageing in new French oak barrels. The finish is long and fruity.
When to drink: With its upfront fruitness it's just the thing to serve with the Spainsh classics, meaty tapas and spicy patatas bravas.
