Marques de Tomares Reserva

“Nose of barrel influenced leather, spice, rustic char/graphite, crusty bread. There’s a garrigue-y thing going on, even wild thyme. Creamy red fruit on palate, moderate acid, good grip, tannins are rustic but clearly polished by time in bottle. This is a really good, complex bottle of Reserva Rioja, void of coconut and anything apparent or expected. I imagine this is what old-fashion Rioja was like in the1950-60’s, and this bottle should age for a long time” - From La Luz Selections
