2014 Remelluri 'Granja Remelluri' Gran Reserva Rioja
Winemaker Notes: The nose is full of pine forest, wild herbs, and black raspberries. A smoky raspberry depth yields to herbs, roasted cherries, and lively minerality. It is a wine that is incredibly focused and long-lasting through to the finish. Blend: 58% Tempranillo, 28% Garnacha, 11% Graciano, 3% Other Varieties.
Blend: 85% Tempranillo, 10% Garnacha, 5% Graciano
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "I tasted the 2014 Granja Remelluri Gran Reserva from a year that wasn't easy. Like 2013, which vintage I was able to compare this with in my earlier tasting, 2014 was also a late harvest with rain, and they also had to sort and select the grapes and ended up bottling a small quantity, 9,860 bottles instead of the usual 20,000 or so. It's a little riper than the 2013, but it feels very complete. This is a red for the long run, and I am truly impressed by its texture and the quality of the tannins. I see a jump in quality here, hopefully the direction the wines are going to develop in the future. It was bottled in May 2017 after close to 30 months in barrel."
