The purple/black-colored 2005 Remirez de Ganuza has a great aromatic array of pain grille, pencil lead, scorched earth, lavender, spice box, and blackberry. Broad, mouth-filling, layered, and structured, this still tightly wound Rioja has all the right stuff. All it needs is another 8-10 years to fully blossom after which it will provide pleasure through 2046.
Vibrant purple. Heady aromas of dark berry preserves, rose, bayberry and five-spice powder. Rich and creamy but lively, offering spicy red and dark berry flavors perked up by tangy mineral and cracked pepper notes. Becomes sweeter and smokier with air, finishing with outstanding clarity, focus and length. This is a superb example of the fresh side of this vintage in Rioja.
