Cvne Rioja Gran Reserva "Imperial" 1973

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lovely warm fruit on the nose with a slightly jammy tone and backing elements of ass, ash, and polished leather. This gains a nice violet top note and has a deep, powerful bouquet. In the mouth this is elegant yet a touch shallow with nice fruit across the palate and on to the shortish finish. It's vibrant but fading a bit. 90pts
