2010 Cune – Rioja Gran Reserva $36.99

This generous red shows a traditional character, with leafy, dried herb, tea and spice notes framing dried cherry, licorice and leather flavors. Firm tannins and balsamic acidity impart structure, and this shows plenty of depth, with a juicy, spicy finish. Wine Spectator: 94 Points

The 2010 Cune Gran Reserva is a blend of 85% Tempranillo 10%, Graciano and 5% and Mazuelo, which matured in barrel for two years and in bottle for three. There is more American oak here with sweet spices, some roasted and tar aromas, with hints of leather and less finesse than in other
Gran Reserva from the house; ViƱa Real, Imperial and Contino play in a different league. Wine Advocate: 91 Points
