Baigorri Reserva 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is super aromatic with spicy, toasty French oak notes on the nose along with vanilla, sandalwood, cherry licorice and a hint of citric green anise seed. Smooth, rich and just a touch soft in the mouth, this manages to retain a certain sense of delicacy even though it is fairly opulent and rich in the mouth. The tannins and acidity are totally covered by the fruit but with time you can sense their firmness. The flavors are marked by dark and spiced oak over earthy black berry fruit. The finish is all structure at this point, with a shading of black cherry sticking to the structure. This is quite a powerful wine that shows just a hint of heat on the finish. If you like powerful wine, this might be for you. 89pts

Darker color to this reserva and a nose that makes me think I'm in bordeaux with a spanish mistress. Pencil lead, and anise spice with an undercurrent of dark fruit. Really bold and walking with a foot in today and a foot in the yesterday. Lush in the mouth at first I feel like I'm old spain with rusitc flavors and yet as I swallow a bright note of candied cherry springs forth giving me a balancer to the austere herbalness. Juicy wine with very strong and coating tannins, I'll give this wine a long wait...5-10yrs, and I think you may have something as long as the fruit sticks around.

Incredibly dark, ruby red in color in with an aromatic and floral nose showing rich red roses, bright dark cherries and just a touch of tanned leather. Really a lovely, dense and layered nose that is not mimicked in the same way on the palate. Although lovely in texture, with smooth fine tannins and great acidity, flavors are more demure showing simple dark fruits and a touch of spice on the end of a long and lingering finish.
