1976 Rioja Bordón, Bodegas Franco - Españolas


1976 Rioja Bordón, Bodegas Franco - Españolas
Drunk a couple of days ago with a medium spicy chicken dish. The nose is a bit shy at first but soon evolves into that classic dill, dried strawberries and undergrowth nose that only old school Rioja can bring forth. Some additional notes of dry tobacco and bonfire. Elegant and fine with a hint of VA.
The taste is mature and soft with notes of a dried up red currant jam, earth, tobacco and old leather. A fine acidity. The finish cuts of a bit short. Better on the nose. Very good though.
