Wine Enthusiast just published its Top 100 wines list of 2019. Spain is represented by 5 wines and the only Rioja included is IMPERIAL GRAN RESERVA 2011 in the 5th position with 97 points. Michael Schachner says: “This is a fabulous gran reserva from a very good but lightly heralded vintage. Aromas of spiced plum, black olive, fig, tobacco and cassis come together like a puzzle. A deep, pure palate shows near-perfect balance, while this tastes of plum, berry fruits and earthy spice. Smooth, elegant and chocolaty on the finish, this delivers all one can ask for from Rioja”.
