2009 Faustino I Gran Reserva, Rioja, Spain

Gorgeous deep ruby red. Well integrated fruit and oak on the glass.  Delicate, yet fully balanced and stylish mouthfeel. This is a remarkable wine, classy, refined, and layered with chocolate, tobacco, and spice. Plenty of life left. For the price, this Rioja surprisingly over delivers.
