1996 Bodegas Roda Rioja Roda I Reserva

Winemaker's Notes

An estate project begun in the late 1980s with the goal of producing the finest red wine in Spain. Certainly very few wines in the world match Rodas combination of concentration, finesse and minerality. 1996 produced a spicier (cloves predominant), more nervy wine than 1994 and 1995, with similar weight. The 1997. arriving in late Spring, displays great mineral complexity and length, the result of a late harvest of ancient vines. 100% Tempranillo, aged 24 months in oak.
