Bodegas Beronia Gran Reserva Rioja 2005
Intense red cherry color. Complex and elegant on the nose with aromas of plum and sweet spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg. Slight notes of almonds with the oak very well integrated. Good structure on the mouth with notes of mature fruit and chocolate. A lively wine with good tannic concentration. Long and persistent.<br/><br/>90% Tempranillo, 6% Graciano, 4% Mazuelo
Inky dark plum color. Somewhat volatile nose. Very smooth initial mouth sensation. Not a lot of fruit--some hint of blackberry, somewhat tart, very subdued tannin. This definitely a food wine. I think I'm going to get a slice of cheese to have with this first glass. US$24.99 at WIne Club in Santa Ana.
Vanilla and cocoa influence by oak. Plum, black fruit, hints of red and some blue fruit on the nose. Also a roasted meat note. Flavors of plum and sweet spice. Nice structure with flavors of mature fruit and chocolate. Long and persistent. On the back, hints of salty charcuterie. Dry wine. Nice. 91 pts.
External Reviews for Bodegas Beronia Gran Reserva Rioja
A Tempranillo wine from Rioja in Spain. 2005 Beronia, Bodegas Rioja Gran Reserva 750ml
Saturated with black fruit this wine has a gentle maturity and sweetness. Fresh scents of piquillo peppers keep it tight and tuned to Logroqos tapas bars. Wine & Spirits.
Pale-rimmed ruby-red. Pungent aromas of dried cherry, spicecake and vanilla, with smoke and cigarbox overtones. Sweet, palate-coating cherry and cassis flavors are braced by gentle acidity and become spicier with air. Mocha and smoke note linger on a long, supple and gently tannic finish with very good energy.
This wine is absolutely what fans of traditional Rioja should be on the lookout for. It’s smooth, elegant and complex on the bouquet, the perfect introduction to a firm yet classy palate, with berry, plum, spice, tobacco and vanilla flavors. Dry, toasty and just right on the finish. Drink now–2020.
Balance zwischen Frucht und Holz, sehr ausgewogene Tanninstruktur mit langem Abgang.
Dieser Gran Reserva ist eine echte Freude. Ein Klassiker unter den Riojaklassiker, für die anspruchsvollsten Gaumen. Rubinrot, in der Nase den Duft von Dörrpflaumen. Im Gaumen marmeladige Früchte, Rosinen und Gewürze. Perfekte Balance von Textur, Frucht und Barriques.
Still fresh and bright, this juicy red offers cherry, berry, chocolate and licorice flavors. The tannins are light but firm, the acidity has an orange peel note, and the finish is sweet and clean. Drink now through 2015.
