Vina Real Gran Reserva

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

Vintage: 1999
Type: Tempranillo
Country: Spain

This Rioja was quite nice.  Dark berry flavours and oak nose.  It has aged quite well and is drinking nicely at the moment. If you see this on a wine list, do not fear to order it.

Château de la Dauphine

Type: Merlot, Cabernet Franc
Country: Bordeaux, France

V-day Dinner at ROSL 4

This wine we had for with our Valentine’s day menu. It was superb. A wine this old needs to be decanted and left to breath, but afterwards it is an experience. The bouquet was amazing and full, whilst the flavours were subtle (hints of leathery smokiness). If you can find it have some!
