Best Ever Rioja
We finished off our last two bottles of this tremendous wine over the last eight months, and it's a shame it is long gone! It was OK, but not yet great when we first bought it, and reached incredible heights over the last four years. As we usually do, we open a new wine when we get it, to decide if we want to order more. Then we pick a "drink by" date based on the way it evolves.
The nose on this wine was oak-y, a little dirt (a good thing!), and incredible perfume. I think it blasts half the flavors on our favorite tasting wheel, and had nice long finish--and some dregs.
We got hooked on Rioja Reservas in the early 1980s, and this one tastes not only more like a Reserva, but maybe even our best one ever! Cam, please go back and find more! And while you are at it, find us more Duero, Toro and Priorat reds!
