Benjamin Romeo Predicador Rioja 2009

The wines that Benjamin Romeo are making in Rioja are in a class amongst themselves. His labels have arisen to cult-like status, and the Predicador (meaning preacher), now in it’s fourth vintage has a label and name inspired by Clint Eastwood’s Pale Rider, a film which Benjamin loves. A blend of 96% Tempranillo, 3% Garnacha and 1% Viura, the Predicador is an outstanding value, sold at a fraction of the price of his masterpiece “Contador.” Produced using younger vines, but contains the same beautifully crafted style as his other fine cuvees. If you love Spanish wines as much as we do, this is a outstanding introduction to Benjamin Romeo!
