Natalie's Score: 91/100

Burgo Gran Reserva 2009 is floral and fragrant with ripe dark fruit, espresso coffee and smoky vanilla aromas. Produced from old vines Tempranillo, the wine is dry, full-bodied and juicy on the palate with ripe dark berry fruit, cassis, ripe dark cherry, savoury herb and smoky vanilla finishing long on the palate. Tannins are plushy and smooth. So good now! Pour with a equally smoky, slow-roasted beef brisket. Yum!

Viejo Gran Reserva food pairings: game roasts, grilled garlic lamb chops, rabbit fricassee.
