Contador Benjamin Romeo 2000
Having been the winemaker at revered Rioja producer, Artadi, for 15 years, Benjamin Romeo began his solo project, Bodega Contador, in 1995. The year 2000 marked the second commercial release of his flagship wine, Contador, a 100% Tempranillo cuvée from 60-80-year-old vines. This is a fabulously voluptuous and dense style of Rioja with flavours of cassis, black cherry, dark chocolate, coffee beans, leather and dried flowers. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, decanting to remove any sediment is advised.
