Bodegas del Marqués de Vargas Tempranillo Blend Rioja Privada Reserva 2003

External Review by Sam's Wine:

This outstanding trio of wines begins with the 2003 Reserva, a wine composed of 75% Tempranillo, 10% Mazuelo, 5% Garnacha, and the balance a field blend. It spent 23 months in a mix of French, Russian, and American oak. Dark ruby purple-colored, it has a fine nose of earth, vanilla bean, tobacco, black currant, and blueberry. Medium to full-bodied with excellent focus for this vintage, the wine has ample fruit, complex flavors, and excellent balance. Drink it now and over the next 6-8 years.
