Both '97 & '98 were brutal vintages overall in Rioja. That said, I bet this is a wonderful wine.

All I can say is "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts."


Sounds like the fruit from this poor vintage faded well before the oak.

The fruit hasn't faded at all, but neither has the oak. I thought the oak was distracting. Others didn't have quite the same reaction to it that I did.

I expect that the fruit will eventually fade while the coconut still hangs on.
