Remelluri Rioja Reserva 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Remelluri Reserva is the original Granja Nuestra Señora de Remelluri estate wine, fruit of the most important vineyards of the property. It originates from the three valleys surrounding the winery, Remelluri, Valderremelluri and Villaescusa, which belong to the municipalities of Labastida (RIOJA ALAVESA) and Rivas de Tereso, hamlet that belongs to San Vicente de La Sonsierra (RIOJA ALTA). Since the Fourteenth Century, these areas have formed part of Granja Nuestra Senora de Remelluri, the first single-vineyard Rioja property to work with the classic Medoc-Bordeaux method." -Winery

Before broaching present releases, The 2008 Reserva will be the final vintage blended from grapes sourced outside Remelluri's boundaries. Perhaps my score is parsimonious, but intuition tells me that great Reservas in the mold of the 1976 lie in the years ahead. It has a well-defined nose of blackberry leaf, mint, bay leaf and balsamic that would benefit from a little more tension. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, crisp acidity and a lovely, smoke and dried herb-tinged finish with a dash of black pepper. This is quite a "serious" Rioja that needs a little more joie-de-vivre. Drink 2014-2024.
