Urbina Rioja Gran Reserva Especial 2004 14%

DOC Rioja, Spain

Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano blend, aged for 24 months in American and French oak barrels before 48 months in bottle in the Bodega. Urbina Gran Reserva 2004 is a wonderfully mature Rioja which seduces you immediately with its very attractive, complex aromas of black fruit, leather and cedary oak. These lead you into layers of rich, savoury blackcurrant and berry fruit flavours that are in complete harmonious balance with oak. This is a wine of great finesse, velvet smoothness and wondrous length. It has good structure, with some firm tannins in the background which mean that it will last. However, If you want to enjoy a mature Rioja Gran Reserva now, without cellaring it, this is an excellent choice which represents excellent value for such a mature wine from a top Rioja vintage. Drink with oxtail stew marinated in Rioja and served with chorizo, rack of lamb with honey allioli or escalivada Catalana (barbecued aubergine, pepper, onion, and tomatoes.)
