2009 Bodegas Faustino, Rioja Gran Reserva
Red (Rioja, Spain) (WE 93) (JS 92)
Classic Rioja aromas of vanilla, spice, blackberries and violets carry this wine. On the palate, this warm-vintage gran reserva has energy from well-stored acidity, while the flavors include cherry, plum, mocha and a plethora of spices. Chocolate and tobacco flavors along with a general warmth crowd the finish. Medium-to full-bodied. Very fine tannins and polish. Long and beautiful.
