The Wine Society, Exhibition Reserva 2006
Made for The Wine
Society by La Rioja Alta (see its 890 cuvée, left). Selected to charm
drinkers who love the seductive smoothness of a Rioja that has had some
five years in the cellar before release. Unlike so many of the wines you
find today, this has had all the rough edges smoothed off by time.
Lovely. 17pts/20 (90/100pts)
