Expert summary:

Sarah Jane Evans Master of Wine (Decanter World Wine Awards Regional co-Chair for Spain and a member of the Gran Orden de Cabaleros de Vino for services to Spanish Wine) discusses one of her top three Rioja Wines:

“Pedro Benito Urbina, Selección Crianza 1999: it was delightful to taste this mature traditional style – the oldest wine in the tasting. Light-bodied with moderate alcohol and a silky palate; tobacco oak adds a savory note. Long and delicately Balanced. This is what Rioja can do! 18.5/20 (95/100) Drink 2015-2025”
