Finca Allende Rioja Aurus 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

A perfect ambassador for new-wave Rioja from a memorable recent vintage. Thereare truffles and wild herbs on the nose and a full, richly textured palate withexcellent length. A wine for keeping.<br/><br/>"Price aside, there is no question that the 2001 Aurus, an 85%Tempranillo/15% Graciano blend, is a profound offering. It possesses afabulously complex nose of black fruits intermixed with truffles, licorice,smoky oak, and flowers. Voluptuously-textured with super concentration,and afinish that lasts nearly a minute, this monumental Rioja should drink wellyoung, yet last for 15 years." 95/100 pts (Robert Parker - WineAdvocate - June 2005)
