Vina Amezola Rioja Reserva 2001


This i liked - perhaps not quite on a par with a Gran Reserva - though for some that might be a blessing! This had all the classic red fruit flavours and aromas with a touch of smokey oak, pepper and nutmeg - in short classic Rioja (well at least what I'd call Rioja anyway!) This will continue to develop for a little time yet - but for now is perfectly drinkable and would be ideal with a nice leg of lamb.

took me a long time to get that one... then I realised that it was you talking about the blooming dog!

For those of you not party to this discussion - Serena is my sister and nutmeg is the name of our mother's dog - hence to vin de "wet dog"!
