1996 Cune Vina Real Gran Reserva
Bright ruby, cherry red with good colour structure. Extremely elegant on the nose, balancing mature, fine fruit with the toasty, spicy notes from the wood. On the palate it is rich, structured and complex. Blend: 95 % Tempranillo, 5% Graciano
International Wine CellarRuby-red. Suave, floral scents of cherry, strawberry preserves, raspberry, smoked meat, vanilla bean and mocha. Medium in weight but packing serious flavor, with sweet red berry and cherry flavors beautifully complemented by earthier notes of cured tobacco, musky underbrush and fresh herbs. A silky, wonderfully pure wine with superb balance and the texture and brightness of a major-league Burgundy. Finishes supple and long, on a note of ripe cherry.
