Artadi El Pison Reserva 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

At the top of the Artadi hierarchy is this limited production cuvees. El Pisonis Burgundian in its orientation. The 1998 El Pison is made from a Tempranillovineyard planted in 1945, and aged 18-24 months in new French oak, from yieldsof only 22 hectoliters per hectare. It offers a deep ruby/purple color and aglorious nose of raspberry jam intermixed with cherries and smoky new oak. Asthe wine sits in the glass, more complex, floral aromas with a graphite-likecharacter emerge. A sexy, elegant, medium to full-bodied, beautifully made winetranscends the Rioja appellation with a singular style and character. Drink itover the next 12-15 years. This is a classic, yet singular expression of Riojathe likes of which can be found nowhere else in that viticultural area. (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate)
