Fabulous old school Rioja from one of the region’s most revered producers. Bosconia Reserva is so restrained and has the perfect balance of fresh fruit, dried fruit and wood spice. 5 years in American oak but it’s so refined with none of that other the top vanilla so common in modern Rioja. A fabulous taste of what Reserva Rioja used to be all about.

“The profile of the 2008 Viña Bosconia Reserva is a lot less ripe than the 2009, and there are some herbal undertones; it’s more reserved and austere, still undeveloped after five years in barrel and at least that much time in bottle. It’s a blend of 80% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacho and the rest Graciano and Mazuelo that matured in used American oak barrels for five years. It reveals a medium body and some dusty tannins. It’s quite the opposite from the 2009, and I think a hypothetical blend of the two would be better than each. It’s a cold and austere vintage of Bosconia.” – 93 Points, Luis Gutiérrez, Robertparker.com
