Bodegas Roda - Roda I reserva 1995
Today I had the privilege of joining a vertical tasting of Bodegas Roda wines at the Dutch distributor Fourcroy.
Onno Kokmeijer from 2 star Michelin restaurant Ciel Blue did treat us with some perfect tapas inspired on his visit to the Rioja region.
On the label you see the Roda I Reserva - vintage 1995. A very nice year for this Rioja.

In the glass a clear, deep garnet color. Slight bricking.
On the nose delicious aromas of ripe prunes, cherries with hints of leather, licorice, herbs and spices.
The palate was so nice with fine tannins, still alive and kicking acidity with flavours of leather, toasted cherries and spices.
A great wine and still not at its prime. A great Rioja with a good PQR.
