Bodegas Faustino I Gran Reserva

Wine Description

(From 2001 Vintage) Aromas of dried cherry and rose petals, flavors of dark berries and tobacco, ripe tannins and a long, inviting finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Rusty red in color with tobacco and dried red currant notes on the nose, this Rioja, at over a decade, shows a delightful amount of evolution. With some oak on the finish, this bottle deserves, even requires, a well-prepared London Broil.
