I'm sitting now, after a long dinner, with three glasses of wine. I'm drinking a 1985 and a 2004 Rioja, from the same producer, along with a 1983 Rheingau riesling. All three wines are sublime - they taste of wonder, and the grandeur of what true terroir wines can deliver. And I'm reminded why I fell in love with this fickle, sometimes frustrating obsession.
Photos, and an in depth look at these wines, in a few days.
