Review: 2004 Bodegas Franco Espanolas Rioja Bordon Gran Reserva

rioja_bordon_reserva_siluetaA great value on an old Gran Reserva Rioja from Bordon. Surprisingly fresh for a wine nearly a decade old. Just showing the first hints of oxidation, and then only after substantial time in glass. On the nose, dark cherries, black tea, and some earth. The modest body offers fresh berries, light vinegar notes, and more tea leaf. A great food wine.
