Wine Entry : Vina Albail Gran Reserva 1991 (Spain)

This Spanish bottle of wine was in the cupboard for a number of years and when opening the cork, it was disintegrating. I managed to pull most of the cork out with a wine opener and the rest of the wine was sieved with a tea sieve. Pleasantly surprised, that with the nice long aging the wine became very approachable and warm. A brick brown colour welcomed us to the wine. Don’t think this wine is available anymore in the market due to it’s age.

Smell : Ripe cheery aromas with vanilla scent

Taste : Smooth, slight or no existence of any tannins and intense fruits and blackcurrents.

After-taste : Long finish with a warm feeling in the chest with a mild tannin base.

Description at the back of the label :
Deep ruby with terracotta and ripe-cheery tones. The nose is intense, with dark fruit, spice and vanilla aromas. The palate is powerful and rich followed by a long finish of ripe fruit and polished tannins.
