An age-worthy red from a stellar vintage for Rioja, this fresh red is bursting with dried berry aromas and hints of vanilla. The palate is rich, yet light with smooth, developed tannins.

As always, a red for elegant and refined. A lovely accompaniment with roasted, highly flavored meats such as suckling pig, this aged red is round and smooth with a long-lingering flavor on the palate.

Amber-edged, fading red. Compelling bouquet of dried red fruits, rose, lavender, anise and gingerbread. Deep, velvety red fruit flavors are surprisingly lithe, with candied floral and licorice qualities contributing complexity. Gains sweetness with air and finishes long, with strong mineral and floral qualities. For this much complexity in an aged Burgundy, youandrsquo;d likely pay twice as much.

This mature red shows a light brick color, with delicate aromas of spice, dried fruit and rose. Supple and still lively, offering flavors of dried berry, tea, vanilla and spice. This whispers rather than shouts, but has distinctive character. For fans of the traditional style. Drink now.

Proceeding to the Bosconia vineyard in El Boseque, the 1991 Vina Bosconia Gran Reserva spent ten years in barrel and has a lucid deep ruby core with a tawny rim. It is endowed with a sensual bouquet with red cherry, fresh fig, cola and a touch of thyme. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth, velvety texture, perfect acidity and lovely, natural peppery dark cherry fruit laced with balsamic and white pepper. This is simply divine. Drink nowandndash;2020+.
