Earthy 2001 Gran Reserva Rioja still holding into it's fruit! Nice wine for Mundaka's tapas tonight.

Dark, dusty and earthy yet filled with tart cherry and plum. Great acid! Full bodied, robust. Definitely a food wine.

Minerality, earthy on the nose.
Tart sour cherry, cranberry, silky and hints of herb on the palate.
Very well integrated between fruits and acid !!!

Smooth as silk. Dried flowers, leather, earth and a hint of cherry.

Holding up well, but a bit too much barnyard and dirt for my taste. The '87 Lopez de Heredias are quite a bit better
