Bodegas Gomez de Segura Reserva Rioja 2009
Man, we are BUSTIN’ today!! Wow!! 60+% OFF a 91-POINT, perfect-drinking powerhouse Rioja Reserva!! A wine that is nearly impossible to even find in the U.S., but we went to Spain and dug it up, DIRECT from the winery ---- ‘cause that’s what we DO here in Napa! Smashingly good at this astonishing price. Yeah, no, look at it again, that is a wicked deal!
When we tasted this, we assumed it was at LEAST in the $40 range --- it rings with class and complex layers of flavor. THEN we saw the 91-point score and said “we need to buy as much of this as we can”. We did, and got a superb price by bringing it in directly ourselves and cutting out all those middlemen. Everyone wins! Just landed in the warehouse!
There is a delicate, finesse-filled ethereal-ness in this lovely wine --- perfumey spiced red fruits, sweet dark cherry, a hint of something like root beer and woodsmoke, very subtle but penetrating. Medium-bodied, not heavy, just terrifically complex and one of those wines that changes every few minutes. It’s SEXY in your mouth --- the bottle age has turned it into a smoothly humming, balanced beauty. Wow! Seriously getting better with every sip!! CRAZY-GOOD at this price and deserving more than 91 points in our book! While it lasts, that is...don’t miss!
