"A custom cuvée made by Eric Solomon and Rafael de Haan, the 2015 Hazana Vinas Viejas is a classic, old school styled effort based on 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano aged 10 months in French and American oak. With medium to full-bodied richness, excellent concentration, and lots of chocolatey dark fruits, new leather, dusty earth, and graphite notes, it’s one hell of a wine for 14 dollars."~J.D.

Vinous Media 90
“Vivid ruby-red. Spice-accented red fruits, succulent flowers and a hint of coconut on the fragrant nose. Supple and broad in the mouth, offering fleshy raspberry and cherry cola flavors that pick up a hint of smokiness with aeration. In a forward, appealingly sweet style, with rounded tannins and a hint of cured meat sneaking in on the long, supple finish.“~J.R.

Bodegas Abanico Hazaña

View all from Bodegas Abanico Hazaña
Bodegas Abanico HazañaHazaña is a recently introduced custom cuvee made in partnership between Eric Solomon and Rafael de Haan. British born and educated, Rafael joined the UK wine trade in 2000, realizing early on that he would rather have a career closer to the vine. In 2001 he moved to Barcelona, brokered some wine and opened a tapas bar before he opened his first property, Bodegas Abánico, in Rioja with his partner Nuria Altes.

Named for the ancient poetic takes of heroism, Hazaña is made at Vinícola Real in the classical style of Rioja. The fruit comes from the vicinity of Logrono, where it grows at 500 meters above sea level on red clay and chalky limestone soils. A blend of Tempranillo with up to 15% Graciano, it is aged in French and American oak before released.

Terence

A very good wine representing a great value

"This is not a great wine and I suspect it will not improve by keeping it in the cellar for two or three years but it is an absolutely delicious wine to drink right now and a remarkable value. Softer than many Rioja wines you could pair it with just about any sort of food (chicken, salmon, hamburgers and steaks). Dark fruit, velvety tannins, hints of forest floor, just enough complexity to keep it interesting and very pleasant in the mouth. Highly recommended."
