1994 Cune Imperial Gran Reserva Rioja
Polished and harmonious, this red shows cherry, plum, toast and tobacco flavors on a generous frame. It's still fresh. Drink now through 2005. 18,000 cases made. –TM
Imperial is the historic Cune's top brand, produced as either a reserva or gran reserva in only the best vintages. These are the most consistently impressive wine's from this storied bodega, traditional, detailed, firmly structured and built for the long haul. This particular bottling came to us through our friendly Sonoma neighbors at the Rare Wine Company, who recently sourced several large collections of Rioja from cellars in the cool, damp, northerly climes of the Pais Vasco (Basque Country)."
