1998 La Rioja Alta Rioja Gran Reserva 890
Both '97 & '98 were brutal vintages overall in Rioja. That said, I bet this is a wonderful wine.
I'll know in a few hours, w+a. I opened a bottle of this (purchased at the same time as this one) back in the fall of 2014 and I recall that it was excellent but still very young. It'll be interesting to see how it has developed in the intervening year and half.
