What to drink?..
something white with
character and fruit.
great match with the Sushi, perfect balance..and a good finish..one of the best GV I have tasted.
After all that fish...we needed a red wine.
Urbezo Reserva 1999
Made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carinena and Merlot.
I was excited after opening this..
I had caught a 'whiff' (always gets me going)...
medium deep in colour with lightening brown rim;
the promised eucalyptus that I had smelled..
was just about still there, some vanilla, smoky,
the Cabernet aroma reminding me of wonderful Bordeaux.
The taste..well..at first it seemed it could match the big intro I gave it..but the wine seemed to crash in the glass...became really very dry...and the aftertaste thatone would expect..just didn't happen.
As with Riojas of this age.. I open and drink..
as I find they dry out as well...pity..maybe a
younger version would show better as
this Bodega is rated highly.
