Cune Rioja Reserva 1985

Winemaker's Notes:

Direct from the winery! We had the opportunity to taste this wine in May 2011 at a library tasting of Cune wines ranging from the 1973 vintage to present. We were amazed at the freshness and vigor of these wines. The 1985 Reserva, composed of mostly Tempranillo with some Grenache and Mazuelo, showed extremely well, with evolved aromas of red cherry, vanilla and spice. Supremely suave and complex, and remarkably fresh for a 26-year-old wine, it still retains a good backbone of acidity and refined tannins. While this wine is drinking beautifully today, it is not likely to fade for years to come.
