Wine tasting note: 1978 Glorioso Rioja Gran Reserva

1978 Glorioso Rioja Gran Reserva

12th Aug 1999 GBP18 Rioja Table Red

Lovely, even mahogany red fading to brown - mature.
Open, developed aromas of earth and berries with nicely integrated hints of oak and creamy coffee - a fragrant, alcoholic nose.
Medium-bodied but intense, with very sweet, juicy berries, a soft, filmy texture and a long, perfumed, ethereal finish.
This is glorious, concentrated but delicate stuff. Wow.Wow.Wow!
