Fully-Mature Mixed Spanish Reds
Fully-Mature Mixed Spanish Reds
You'll receive two bottles each of the following wines:
2 x 1989 Valduero, Crianza, Ribera del Duero
From a year the Ribera del Duero D.O. regulatory board officially rates as very good (out of Fair/Good/Very Good/Excellent), 33 years later it gives fresh, dried florals with leather and white pepper aromas; a fresh and lively on the palate with vibrant flourishes of red and black fruit, gentle grip and finishing with remarkable tidiness, lingering nuances of red fruit and pepper.
2x 1994 Senorio de Sarria, Gran Reserva, Navarra
Interestingly, an element of Cabernet Sauvignon added to a majority of Tempranillo: notes of balsamic, leather and soy, with faintly lingering spice on the nose; silky, juicy, vibrant palate of lively red fruit, dried fruit and florals. Seriously pleasant, with surprising length and vigour on the finish. Very Good is how the denominación directly opposite Rioja has categorised 94.
2 x 1994 Coto de Imaz, Reserva, Rioja
Twenty-eight years on, doing what mature Tempranillo ought: meaty, pruny, savoury pepper-spice notes on the nose, still with subtle hints of black fruit; on the palate sweet red/dark, peppery fruit driven by an impressively juicy acidity and very gentle grippiness. Lingering sultanas, fig and red fruit on an equally impressive, very clean finish. It will be easy to drink a great deal of this wine. We were little surprised to note the Rioja DOC regulatory board officially rating the 1994 vintage Excellent. It was, and its here.
Purchase this rare mixed case for a full experience in the complexities and ageworthiness some of the great reds of Spain can provide. Its certainly one opportunity that wont wait so long.
