Natalie's Review

Marqués De Vitoria Gran Reserva 1996, D.O.C.A. Rioja, Spain: Vintages Wine Panel: Unlike the majority of Rioja wines, which are blends of Tempranillo and other grapes (aged in American oak), this version is made with only Tempranillo and is aged in French oak casks for 24 months plus six years in bottle before release. The result is aromas of red currants, clove and black pepper. The palate shows a medium body, smooth tannins and lingering spice-filled finish. My note: A lovely rioja, big and oaky with a solid core of black-red fruit. 902916 13% D 750 mL  $30.95 Score: 90/100. March 1, 2008  Full Review
