1998 Fernando Remírez de Ganuza Rioja Reserva

SKU #1245077 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1998 Reserva was diminished a bit by late harvest rainfall. Even so, it is an elegant, savory, complex wine that has good depth and concentration. (JM) Inner quote mark (6/2010)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright medium ruby. Distinctly sauvage, sweaty aromas of raspberry, leather and roasted meat; this may be a bit too rude for the fainthearted. Then chewy, dense and deep, with outstanding intensity of flavor and great inner-mouth lift. Distinctly wild-verging-on-rustic but cleaner and more deeply fruity than the nose suggests. Finishes long and leathery, with a touch of youthful austerity. Seems a bit less superconcentrated than the '96, but this is a Rioja of great individuality. 93+ Inner quote mark (11/2001)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Dark in color, with dynamite bacon, boysenberry and lavender aromas. Quite a saturated wine, with smoke and earth surrounding cola and dried fruit. This is killer Rioja, one with all the trimmings. There’s racy spice, pencil lead and push. Sensationally snazzy and stylish. *Cellar Selection* (MS) Inner quote mark (3/2004)
