For lovers of more ‘rough-and-ready’ styles of Riojan Gran Reservas, the 2000 Burgo Viejo is definitely worth a few...

The 2000 Burgo Viejo Grand Reserva, comprised of 100% Tempranillo aged in French oak for 24 months. It is medium bodied, with intense aromas of integrated to AGED red berries (namely red currant), pronounced leather and oak, spices and faint vanilla. Tannins are refined (decant for 15 to 30 min) and the finish is long to extra long. Now is the time to drink it and it should hold for the next 3 to 5 years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 92 pts - definitely a recommended buy - 10 year old, well crafted wine for under $25?? Can't go wrong with that. Tasted Feb/11.

Of the reds I tasted for the North of 9 'Selections', this wine did not make the final cut. That said, the next day, we revisited the bottle along side roast chicken infused with fresh Rosemary and the combination was exceptional. The wine was certainly not bad the first day but with some air and the right food, I highly recommend this old world example.
