Cosme Palacio y Hermanos reserva privada Rioja 2001

88+ points

Rioja, Spain. 13.5%

I found this a little hard to assess.  It’s still young and rather closed.  It’s not traditional with dollaps of American oak, nor does it apear to be going for the modern extracted style (promoted by some US wine writers).  It’s a serious wine, but a little hard for me to get my head/tastebuds around at present.  If I were at home, assessing it in familiar surrounding, proper glasses etc it might be easier.
