Beronia Rioja Gran Reserva 2001

Beronia Rioja Gran Reserva 2001
Grape: Tempranillo-blend
Region: Rioja, Spain
Oaked: Yes, two years
Color: Tawny, slightly darker than the Rioja Crianza
Aromas: Leather, muted berry, oak, the aroma drew me back in each time I tasted.
Acid/Sweetness: Balanced but dry. I did not experience an overdrying "tannic" sensation I expected.
Body: Medium (lighter than I expected)
Finish/Length: clean, the fruit lingers
Date(s) consumed: 9/31/11 and 10/1/11
Price: 25.99 ( on the cheap end of the gran reserva spectrum)
Merchant: Sherry-Lehmann

Foods paried with:
1) Choizo and Italian Fontina stuffed mushrooms–good Pairing, not specacular–the wine outclassed the Mushrooms
2) Dates stuffed with Chorizo and Manchego—OK pairing but the Gran Reserva didn’t stand up to the sweetness of the dates very well
3) Pont L’Eveque Cheese–an outstanding combination. They made each other better.
4) Manchego Cheese–OK pairing, neither interferred with the other but didn’t enhance either very much either
5) Italian Fontina—not a good match

Overall impressions: The price keeps this wine from being anything other than a special occasion wine. It’s complexity would be lost when paired with many of the Rioja regions great dishes. Although I am not lamb’s greatest fan, this one might go very well with a simple (rare please) lamb chop with a pan sauce of mushrooms. But that’s as complex of a dish as I would pair this one with. A grass fed beef steak might be a great substitute for the lamb as well.

Recipes used: Cracked Wheat Pilaf with Tomato and Cinnamon (561), Grilled Pepper Salad with Fontina (159), Sauteed Eggplant with Parsley and Pine Nuts (367)

My boss gave me a bunch of fresh peppers and eggplants from his garden, so I turned it into supper for myself and Michael and Ginger, who kindly lent me their kitchen while mine is out of commission. Madison suggested a pairing of sauteed eggplant with the gently spiced pilaf (I substituted bulgur for cracked wheat, since HEB didn’t have any), which worked well–the pairing had a nicely Mediterranean/Middle Eastern vibe to it. The pepper salad was just ok–the roasted peppers by themselves have a slimy texture that even cheese couldn’t dispel.
