Bodegas Beronia Tempranillo Blend Rioja Gran Reserva 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes used for Beronia Gran Reserva are chosen in the vineyards, usually from the oldest vines. On arrival at the winery, the grapes are hand-selected on a sorting table, and only the best quality are used for Gran Reserva. The role of oak in Beronia style is very important, and much has been invested into how the wines, once in the barrel, react to different toast and styles of woods. These experiments have led Beronia to be pioneers in the use of mixed barrels, barrels with American oak slaves, and French oak ends. The wine was bottled in February 2008 where it has remained since.

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.

A surprising amount of fruit remains in this wine. Lots of pomegranite juice, black cherry, and red plums. With air, secondary flavors come through such as sweet tobacco, cigar box, and dust. A great buy for a gran reserva!

Beronia Gran Reserva Rioja shows aromas of cherries, plums and cedar with hints of vanilla. Beronia Gran Reserva Rioja is rich and nicely focused on the palate, with flavors of berries, vanilla and chocolate. Beronia Gran Reserva Rioja will be perfect with a piece of lamb or a steak.

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.

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.

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.

Tasting Notes:

Here's an example of old-school Rioja deliciousness: sawdust and dill from American oak barrels, powerful red and black fruits, hints of raisins and other dried fruits, dried mint, and white mushroom caps. These are classic descriptors for classic Gran Reserva wines, though there is just a whiff of toasty new barrels in there, enough to make it even more interesting.

The grapes used for Beronia Gran Reserva are chosen in the vineyards, usually from the oldest vines. On arrival at the winery, the grapes are hand-selected on a sorting table, and only the best quality are used for Gran Reserva. The role of oak in Beronia style is very important, and much has been invested into how the wines, once in the barrel, react to different toast and styles of woods. These experiments have led Beronia to be pioneers in the use of mixed barrels, barrels with American oak slaves, and French oak ends.

Notes: 24 months in mixed American and French oak barrels
