Current stock: 15

Urbina Reserva Especial, Rioja, Spain, 1998  

Grapes: Predominantly Tempranillo with Mazuelo and Graciano. Aged for 24 months in French & American oak barrels.

A fully mature, classically made Reserva from Bodegas Urbina with aromas of black cherry, oak, minerals, truffles and spices. Sweet and silky-textured mid palate, with refreshing acidity, elegant and a very long finish.

"Dark ruby colour with amber glints. It has a savoury, figs, apricots and nuts along with a vanilla oak bouquet. Elegant, attractive sweet middle palate with concentrated, ripe fruit, excellent length, complex as well as classy." 90 points, Highly Recommended Decanter Mature Rioja Panel Tasting, 2018

"Urbina Reserva 1998 is a full-bodied 95% Tempranillo, 5% Mazuelo and Graciano from the Rioja wine region. Lovely on the nose with earthy, leafy sous bois and sweet dried tobacco leaf aromas on the nose, this mature Spanish red is so elegant and rich on the palate with dried fruit, stone fruit, nutty, savoury and smoky vanilla flavours on the palate. Delicious now." 93/100 points, Natalie MacLean, June 2021

Also rated 94/100 points by Tim Atkin MW, January 2020.

Drink with sausage cassoulet, grilled meats, or a lentil stew.
