6. C.V.N.E. Vina Real Reserva Especial Rioja (1962)

« Prev Next » 6 of 9
A little lean and slightly herbal at first, this gained depth and complexity with air revealing layers of cherry, smoke, pickle barrel, smoked paprika and cigar box aromas. Really fresh and aromatic. Elegant and refined on the palate, with an early burst of sandalwood and cigar box, followed by a fine cherry pit note on the back end that drifted onto a long, slightly mineral and spiced finish. This has such a lovely texture, delicate, ethereal and refined. It did lack some fruit and perhaps a touch of depth, but it was still a treat. 91 points
