C.V.N.E. Vina Real Reserva Especial Rioja 1944

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit of caramel greets the nose here followed by slightly roasted notes of sweet herbs, veal stock, and hot iron. On entry this shows a touch of the sweetness of oxidation, which is followed by a somewhat lean mid-palate, which shows pale fruit topped with an herbal edge over a core of dry woodiness. It’s a bit clumsy and I would guess has seen some storage issues over the years, but it is still intact, a testament to Rioja’s durability, and still enjoyable. 85 points
