What a great year for Rioja; for La Rioja Alta, too, because important details were bringing change. More vineyards had been bought, and they were starting to import the staves from Missouri and Ohio to make their own barrels. Barrel age was sharply reducing – from 15 years, to four or five years. This is a wonderfully complex wine, with an intense aroma still, and a long, elegant finish.
