Bodegas Bilbainas Rioja la Vicalanda de Vina Pomal Reserva 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The style of Viña Pomal celebrates the marriage of tradition and modernity, paying homage to the Rioja tradition but with a renewed style. The wine’s foundation is classic in character, refreshed through modern oenologic techniques. Technical modifications are introduced gradually to preserve the house style, introducing more color, more fruit expression, and new wood. Grapes are cultivated to yield concentrated wines, and aging periods are abbreviated. Unlike the classic Rioja wines, Viña Pomal shows opulent color, generous fruit, and lushness on the palate.

Bodegas Bilbainas:
Bodegas Bilbaínas specializes in making vintage wines, and is regarded as a leader when it comes to setting wine styles. Some of the winery’s flagships are among the most famed and emblematic wines of the Rioja, foremost of which are Viña Pomal and La Vicalanda.

violet and red fruit, very sophisticated, and more delicate compared to the other Bodegas Bilbainas I tasted

Tasting Notes:

Vanilla and American oak derived sawdust notes dominate this wine's nose and mouth at present; red and black cherries and plums are still waiting for a bit more time to take over. The middle and finish are relatively tannic at present, though red cherries and even blueberries linger too.
