Finca Allende 1997 Aurus (Rioja)

This is a dark, supple wine with toasty oak, sweet blueberry and roasted fruit aromas. Textured on the tongue, but vintage-true, it doesn't show the depth of the stunning 1996. Still, the blackberry and prune fruit, earth and leather accents, tangy acidity and dry, peppery finish show class most wines only aspire to. Closes firm and dry. Drink 2003–2007.
