The Oddbins Take

It is said that Genghis Khan was born on the 42 Latitude and because he was born believing he was a chess rook, he continued to move along this axis for the rest of his life, unaware rooks can also move vertically (he wasn’t a big chess fan, he was way more into Risk).

Having grown up with nothing better to drink than fermented mare’s milk, Genghis Khan travelled back and forth along this latitude, conquering indiscriminately and unrelentingly in attempt to find a drink that could satisfy his imperial palate. Unfortunately for Genghis, he was never satisfied, unaware that had he continued a few thousand miles west, he would have stumbled upon Lat 42 Rioja Crianza. Fermented mare’s milk might not be difficult to top but this vibrant Tempranillo with bright flavours of cranberries, red plums, vanilla and white pepper, supported by a smooth palate and silky tannins, may have mollified the old despot.
