There is nothing better than really good, mature Rioja and Urbinas 2004 Gran Reserva and 2006 Reserva Especial with 16 and 14 years in bottle are as good as it gets. I am not in the least surprised they have been featured in the latest issue of Decanter magazines Rioja Guide 2023 with scores of 95 and 92 points respectively.

The Urbina 2006 Reserva Especial is not far behind its elder brother. It is best opened an hour before you drink it to allow it to open up and show its full potential which is considerable - it is packed with luscious, almost savoury fruit flavours. In a word - delicious.

I first tasted Urbina in Arzac’s famous restaurant in San Sebastián in 2005 when Chef Arzac told me that Urbina was very good after 10 years in bottle, and really good after 20. Sound advice from the Master Chef himself which I followed!

Urbina started making Rioja in Rioja Alta 150 years ago and have continued to do so today under the same family ownership. Their wines are known for their classic, elegant and refined style with great aging capacity.

How does the wine taste? Customer Reviews (0)
Nose of well-defined black fruits, black cherries, ripe plum, leather and tobacco, all perfectly integrated with the oak. The palate is round, silky and smooth, with a sumptuous, sweet mid-section of ripe berry and mature fruits. Refreshing acidity; elegant, complex, supremely classic.

"Developed style, with lots of vanilla, freshness and dried herbs and fruits. Crisp brambly acidity that is still full of energy. Drink 2023-2036. (Pedro Ballesteros Torres)"
93 pts, Pedro Ballesteros Torres, | 92 pts, Sarah Jane Evans, | 92 pts, PM, Rioja Guide 2023
"A classic, mature Rioja with plenty of dried-banana character, but also blackberry and smoke notes. Supple and generous until you get to the crisp finish. A blend of tempranillo, graciano and mazuelo."
91 points, James Suckling
