mmm... wine...

To celebrate over 400 wines in our tasting database, we bought a 400 NOK wine (well, 431) to celebrate.

R. Lopez de Heredia Viña Condonia S.A. Cosecha Gran Reserva 1981 (Rioja, Spain)
grape varieties: Tempranillo, Grenache noir, Graciano, Mazuelo/Cariñena

color: clear reddish/dark coralish-brown

nose: floral and aromatic, also earthy, cherries, and leather...

palate: flavor of sour lingonberries, hint of cherries and raspberries. Long and pleasant aftertaste. Perfect for drinking on its own. Will also be OK with very simple meat dishes.

grade: :-D+
