The 1998 Remírez de Ganuza Reserva was classic Rioja - light lots of spicy oak on the nose, figs, crisp cherries, some subtle floral notes and a meatiness that showed later on. Oaky on the palate as well, with velvety tannins and really nice acidity. Still evolving over the night, it could go for a few more years. Great pour, but a touch disappointing at this price point. Tasted blind here.
