Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Deep ruby with a hint of garnet orange on the rim, this ‘01 Rioja Gran Reserva bursts with an extraordinary spicy bouquet--it’s a classic Rioja, concentrated and complex with very fruity notes, balsamic, vanilla, cocoa, and coconut. The palate offers a silky texture, unfolds to reveal a kaleidoscopic range of notes, and coats the mouth with finessed, polished tannins. A blend of 95% Tempranillo from parcels in Briñas, Labastida and Villalba, 3% Graciano and 2% Mazuelo from the Melchorón I and II vineyards in Rodezno, La Rioja Alta Rioja Gran Reserva '890' derives from vines that average over 40 years of age; the wine ages for six years in American oak. With almost two decades of age, this wine is only beginning its journey into greatness, and this ’01 Rioja is a must-have wine for those who are intent on having a serious collection.
