Bodegas Urbina

Rioja (Cuzcurrita del Río Tirón)

Reserva Especial 2006


2006 has a heightened red tea note, and really great fruit depth, as you would expect from this opulent vintage. That said, it’s classic Urbina house style: all that red note, vegetal, dry mulch and cedar forest cold air perfume. There’s tobacco with clovey woodiness, licorice and orris root, and earthiness both ‘shroomy and mineral. It’s delicious, savoury and rounded with lovely tea tannin stripes.
