The family run Ramon Bilbao was founded in Haro in 1924. The family has accumulated extensive holding, over 400 acres of estate vineyards and managing an additional 1,500 acres in Rioja's Ebro Valley, Ramon Bilbao is best known to produce great values from the region. 2016 has turned out a number of excellent wines representing Rioja well such as CVNE, Lopez de Heredia and Muga to name a few. Of particular interest at Ramon Bilbao is the Edicion Limitada which is a selection of barrels both French and American that represent the best of the winery, along with their top cuvee Mirto. Modern in style, Edicion Limitada captures Rioja's essence. Our favorite Ramon Bilbao.

Liquorice & blackberry flavors dominate on the palate with some mocha oak, fresh acidity & deftly extracted tannins. This wine pairs nicely with all types of food because of its savory qualities. Try with Spanish or Mexican cuisine or dishes with tomato-based sauces.

93 points, Tim Atkin

Intense ruby red colour with garnet glints. Clear and bright with a presence of tears when you swirl in the glass. Clean and open with high aromatic intensity. Dark fruit (blackcurrants, plums, blackberries) predominating, with liquorice, fresh herbs and oak. Its time in the cask has provided fine oak, piquant spices and cocoa. Long and intense with balanced acidity. A presence of fine, polished tannins. The retronasal phase recalls the aromas detected on the nose.
