Bid on this bottle of 1964 Martinez Lacuesta Reserva Especial Rioja. This is, as you've heard from us before, a legendary vintage in Rioja, the best in the post modern era. There is an intensity to the red fruited flavors here, which are still incredibly fresh, with lovely chalk tones and an orange quality as well - textbook aged Rioja. Silky smooth, with a great core of sweet fruit and even some length yet. Somewhat confusingly, the back label states "vino de crianza," though it should be noted that Rioja labeling laws were far from clear in this era, and many wines labeled as Crianzas were aged longer than most Reservas are today.
