TN: 1999 Bodegas Riojanas Rioja Monte Real Reserva (Spain, La Rioja, Rioja)

  • 1999 Bodegas Riojanas Rioja Monte Real Reserva - Spain, La Rioja, Rioja (9/22/2020)
    Spur of the moment to open this, and it was quite the moment. At first there was this immediate hit of black cherry, with a a dusty, herbal coating like a haze surrounding the fruit. Thirty minutes later things integrated, as if it had been allowed to simmer over a low flame until all the ingredients had mellowed and integrated to form a finished dish. It’s low on structure, so this is a good time to drink it. It’s high on flavor, so it won’t disappoint. Have a simple meal, or just some charcuterie, and drink it all in.

Well if you’re getting paid by the word, you summed it up better from that dimension :slight_smile:

Nice note.

If only.

And thanks.
