Remelluri Granja Rioja Gran Reserva 2014

Category:

Tempranillo from Rioja, Spain

Tasting 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.

Wine Advocate – 94 Points

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.

Pairing Notes

Pairs well with meat-based paella, braised meats and stews, and Manchego cheese.
