1994 Remelluri, Rioja (About $16)

Drink | Wine | Wine of the Week

August 27, 1997|S. IRENE VIRBILA

An impressive red wine from Rioja in the northeast of Spain, the 1994 Remelluri is opulent and rich in alcohol--a young powerhouse that will only become more expressive with time. The grape is the dark, thick-skinned Tempranillo, and the wine is a world-class Rioja made in a more modern style. Quite simply a beautiful wine. A star in the making. Drink it now with meaty grilled lamb chops or a leg of lamb roasted with lots of garlic. And put away a few bottles for the next century.
