Proceeding to the Bosconia vineyard in El Boseque, the 1991 Vina Bosconia Gran Reserva spent ten years in barrel and has a lucid deep ruby core with a tawny rim. It is endowed with a sensual bouquet with red cherry, fresh fig, cola and a touch of thyme. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth, velvety texture, perfect acidity and lovely, natural peppery dark cherry fruit laced with balsamic and white pepper. This is simply divine.

The soon to be released 1991 Bosconia and Tondonia Gran Reservas are the finest vintages of these wines that I have tasted since the great 1981 were released, and lovers of classic Rioja would be well-served to lock up some of these superb wines in the cellar as soon as they are released. The ’91 Bosconia Gran Reserva is stunning, as it offers up a gorgeous nose of red cherries, orange zest, a touch of red plum, Rioja nuttiness, lovely spice tones, and a simply beautiful base of complex soil tones. On the palate the wine is fullish, deep and as hauntingly transparent as the best bottle of Chambolle-Musigny, with lovely intensity of flavor, great focus and a very long, youthful and beautifully balanced finish. This is a great Bosconia, that will need a few years to fully apogee, and should be very long-lived. (Drink between 2013-2040)
(80% tempranillo, 15% garnacha and 10% mazuelo and graciano) Amber-edged, fading red. Compelling bouquet of dried red fruits, rose, lavender, anise and gingerbread. Deep, velvety red fruit flavors are surprisingly lithe, with candied floral and licorice qualities contributing complexity. Gains sweetness with air and finishes long, with strong mineral and floral qualities. For this much complexity in an aged Burgundy, you'd likely pay twice as much. (JR)
This mature red shows a light brick color, with delicate aromas of spice, dried fruit and rose. Supple and still lively, offering flavors of dried berry, tea, vanilla and spice. This whispers rather than shouts, but has distinctive character. For fans of the traditional style. Drink now. 416 cases made.
