Wine tasting note: 1990 Cosme Palacio Rioja Reserva

1990 Cosme Palacio Rioja Reserva

15th Jul 1999 GBP10 Rioja Table Red

[Low neck, some seepage from cork] Deep garnet browning at rim. Deep, earth and mulberry nose with hints of damp tobacco. Light to medium bodied with earthy, oaky, tobacco flavours, some mulberry fruit carrying through, quite high acidity and firm tannins. Well developed with a lovely finish of autumn leaves. Probably need to drink this up fairly soon, but it may have a few years left in it.
