La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 890

Only made in exceptional years. Open, medium-intensity cherry-red with an orange rim. The nose is very intense with a classic Rioja bouquet -- spicy, balsamic, cured leather, cocoa, tobacco and vanilla notes set against a background of candied fruit. Elegant in the mouth, with good structure and balance, silky, creamy tannins and a lively acidity on the finish. Big, complex aftertaste which will grow as the wine ages in the bottle . This great classic Rioja is suitable with main courses without heavy sauces, meat stews and desserts with chocolate. It is also perfect as a closer for a good meal.

Press:

""The 1995 Gran Reserva 890 has a slightly deeper colour than the 904. It offers a similar alluring fragrance but more grip, richness, and intensity. The wine is very long with a 60 second finish, the personification of classic Rioja at its best. Drink it now through 2020."" – 95 Points, Robert Parker
