Urbina Rioja Reserva Especial 1998, Spain

This is made from 35 year old vines, 95% Tempranillo, 5% Mazuelo and Graciano, aged for 18 months in American oak casks (12 months in new oak casks followed by 6 months in 7 year old) and further aging in bottle before release. Always one of our most popular wines, this old school Rioja is drinking beautifully complex spicy, vanilla imbued, with licorice and still plenty of fruit.
