Bodegas Ignacio Marin Cariñena Barón de Lajoyosa Gran Reserva 1999

Member Review by gabriellaopaz:

Ever feel like your sense were just hit with something from another planet? After drinking so many young iberian wines, I've forgotten what it's like to drink something with such ethereal flavors. Mild brick hues around the rim with a concentration of brown/red in the core. From the get go I felt my nose exploded with unfamiliar aromas such as violet, spring dirt, mineral and a bizarre aroma that I couldn't pin point until an hour after the first tasting, apricot! The palate, although equally bizarre, I found to be even more inviting than the bouquet. Viscous flavors such as brandied cherries, black raspberry syrup, apricot jam came to head ending with like a gentle lap on the beach with quiet hints of clove, anise and nutmeg. So wonderful and worth every single cent!

Bodegas Ignacio Marin:
Our roots go all the way back to Cariñena in 1903, the year in which Mr. Ignacio Marín founded the Winery. Since then, the successive generations of the family saga have dedicated all their knowledge and experience to a highly considered work process that begins in the vineyard and ends in each one of the bottles issued by our Winery to the five Continents.
