C.v.n.e. Vina Real Gran Reserva Rioja 1978

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dried cherry fruit greets the nose along with a whiff of smoke and the lift of VA. Further time in the glass reveals dry soil and dried dill notes along with a little leather rounding things out. The acidity is well integrated here, making this seem a touch soft in the mouth while keeping the red fruits juicy on the mid-palate. At times a touch lean, this gains a minty aspect on the finish and some weight, but continues to lack a little brightness and detail in the mouth. 88 points
