This was one of my favorites from the Vibrant Rioja tasting in May. It has a wonderful black licorice nose that follows through to the finish.
External Reviews for Allende Aurus #
A Proprietary Blend wine from Rioja in Spain. 2005 Finca Allende Aurus 750ml
WA 92 Pts. - IWC 91 Pts. - According to International Wine Cellar: Ruby-red. Sexy cherry and roasted meat aromas are complicated by dried orange peel and licorice. Bitter cherry and anise flavors develop a smoky quality with air and are framed by silky tannins. Gains sweetness on the long, spicy finish, which echoes the exotic orange quality. This is extremely suave. Rated 90+
