Needed a wine worthy to celebrate a special event, a 37 year old wine! Blend, 75% Tempranillo-15% Garnacho-5% ea/Mazuelo/Graciano, aged 10 Years in Am oak! The ‘80 was sealed with wax, preserving the wine, it worked, the cork crumbled on extraction! Very light Ruby, enticing, complex aromas of juicy red fruit, earthy spices & smoke. Cherry flavors with espresso spice, vanilla, smoky oak, earthy leather & black pepper. Well balanced with very soft tannins, long delicate finish with earthy spice. A rare treat to enjoy a mature Rioja, something really special!

Been eyeing this one for a good long moment. Lean and herbaceous, with notes of cola, potpourri, dried herbs and red fruits. Lean, complex and perfectly integrated.

Still tightly wound and backward upon opening, but unwinds to be a beautiful savory treat

Great news for those birthed in 1980 - you've got a winner! Pretty fruit and very alive. Sweet American oak, juicy raisin, lean black currant, dill and menthol. #thewonderfulworldofbank

75% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho, 5% Graciano, 5% Mazuelo. Bricking in color and very slightly tawny. Nuts and roses at first have way to more cherries. Very very silky soft and delicate. This is just elegant if nothing else.
