THE REVIEW

Swirl, sip and marvel. The highly prized Remirez de Ganuza Reserva is available just in time for the holidays.
    This Spanish sensation is known as, "The Latour of Rioja." Robert Parker
     After waiting five years for its return, you may recall that we featured the previous vintage last year. That vintage sold out within days and demand for the current vintage has been building ever since. It may have taken half a decade to import, but trust us...Remirez is worth the wait.
    Remirez de Ganuza is one of the top five wineries in all of Spain, and one of the top three in Rioja. With eight years of bottle age, this vintage is a superstar reminiscent of a world class Bordeaux, with perfect integration of oak, scorched earth aromas and integrated tannins that are impeccably balanced. Lovely and rounded it has a sensual bouquet with kirsch, crushed strawberry, vanilla and a faint tang of marmalade. It is very well-balanced and pure.
    Besides the bottle age and being rare, Remirez de Ganuza can be enjoyed now or cellared for another ten years. This is a special red. Run to your butcher and get your favorite cut of meat; the rest will take care of itself. Enjoy! Read More »
