Product information

Description

Fully-developed, complex nose of mixed spice, grilled meat and tobacco. The palate is a superb balance of power, richness and refinement; layers of aromas beneath the cassis and forest fruits - subtle savoury meatiness, espresso and earthiness, star anise and cigar box. Tannins perfectly integrated, acidity keeps the long finish fresh.

 

Fruit from the finest, 60 year old vines, aged for 24 months in barrel (80% American, one year new, one year 3-5yo), with a full 48 months in bottle prior to release. Grapes come from the coolest vineyard sites to give maximum refinement during the wine's long life, and this shone out as a top Gran Reserva. The 1996 vintage has always lived in the shadows of the two harvest that preceded it, but the long, cool conditions have given great results here at Urbina. Mature, drinking beautifully with the finest roast meat or alongside a good cheeseboard - a real pleasure, and amazing value when you consider the age of this wine.
