2010 Gran Reserva 890 Selección Especial, La Rioja Alta, Rioja

2010 Gran Reserva 890 Selección Especial, La Rioja Alta, Rioja

Only made in the best vintages, the 890 from Rioja Alta celebrates the year the estate was founded. This 2010 is developing beautifully, with a creamy and rich nose of black fruit and sweet spice. Alongside there is increasing complexity of dried fruits, vanilla, sweet tobacco, and macerated strawberries. The palate builds and it finishes with incredible length. The tannins are dense but beginning to soften, and there is lovely freshness on the finish.

Tasting notes

A fragrant nose of blackberries, plums, earth, dried flowers, leather, cloves, sweet tobacco and cigar box. Full-bodied with seamless tannins and fresh acidity. Balanced and layered with great tension. Elegant, with a velvety texture and a long finish. Such length and beauty now with so much age. Drink or hold.
