2000 Finca Allende "Calvario" Rioja (Previously $80)

SKU #1003313

93 points from Robert Parker! He says: The star of this quartet (available at one-fourth the price of the Aurus) is the 2000 Calvario, an unfiltered blend of 90% Tempranillo, 8% Grenache, and 2% Graciano that spent 14 months in French oak. This terrific 2000 boasts a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a beautiful smoky charcoal, blackberry, and cassis-scented bouquet intermixed with licorice and new saddle leather notes. Ripe and opulent, with tremendous texture as well as purity, this head-turning, flamboyant, provocative Spanish red will provide immense pleasure over the next 7-10 years.
