CVNE 1996 Viña Real Gran Reserva (Rioja)

Intriguing earthy, leafy aromas as well as a lot of roasted meat and berry fruit to the nose. Any high expectations, however, are lost on the palate, where it's sour and scouring. Yes, there's red cherry and rhubarb for the tart-fruit lovers, but the bet here is that most will find it starched out and not that pleasant to drink. Imported by Pasternak Wine Imports.
