NYC Offline - August 7, 2009 (Harry's Steak, NYC): A bit hot on the nose with aromas of sour cherry. Medium bodied with marked acidity and flavors of sour cherry and beef blood. Not a world beater, but a good introduction to aged Tempranillo that settled down after opening and tasted more rounded. Food friendly and paired well with steak.
Beautiful clear ruby color. Aromatics of sour cherry, leather, vinegar and orange rind. Flavors of all the same with a touch of black pepper. This ia a classic fine old aged bottle of Rioja Reserva with all the classic aged flavors but a bit light in power. I decanted this fine bottle for two hours to bring out all the flavors. A wonderful example. Who wants to share the next? I have five more! E.
