2001 Reserva Especial Rioja, Bodegas Urbina

Bodegas Urbina only release their wines when they reach their peak, and the fact that the 2001 has only been available since 2014 is an indication of how great this vintage was. Being Especial it has been taken one step further than the standard reserva. The best grapes were chosen for this wine and the slightly longer period of maturation both in barrel and bottle has resulted in a fabulously complex wine with vibrant sweet spice combining with summer berries and a toasty character on the finish. This is a wine to savour.
