I read Paco’s note on the 2000 in Tasting Notes.
I wonder how this wine has aged/ages ?
the 2000 still a good buy ??
I have adored it when I have had it but have not had it with some bottle age.
Sweet wines tend to age well… and Molino Real has a very good structure and has stayed quite a long tine in oak cask…. So I find no reason to expect a decline.. in fact IMMO you can expect more than 5 years to drink it. Unfortunately I don have another bottle to do the experiment ;-)
The US importer, at least, suggests that this is not meant to age.
That surprises me Walt.
I had thought that to be true of the MR
but had hoped the Molino Real was for the long haul.
As usual the test will be to uncork one !
btw I had the Pesquera reserva especial 78 ? (bottled 1984)while in Spain over the summer.
Will post the tasting note very soon. Also took some photos of the label as it generated such a detective hunt but I don’t know if I can
upload them here.
Sorry for being late, but I had a really bad experience with this particular wine.
I kept one bottle on my cellar of Molino Real Mountain Wine 2001, just to check its aging ability. Well, when I finally opened it, the wine was down. Dried due to the oak ";treatement"; it left me quite disappointed (and a bit angry, also).
I think it’s a pitty you can cellar a sweet wine for a long time. But, such is life.
