The 2005 Felix Callejo Family Reserve is similarly styled but a bit more closed. It is more structured, with a minimum of 6-8 years of evolution ahead. It will be a most enjoyable exercise tasting the 2003, 2004, and 2005 side-by-side 10 years down the road. The Callejo family owns 60 hectares of low yielding Tempranillo vines (Tinto Fino as it is known in Ribera del Duero) ranging in age from 25-70 years. All of the following wines are 100% Tempranillo from estate vineyards and were fermented with native yeasts.

The solid structure is chiseled from granite, but carries elegant, even delicate flavors of lilac, strawberry, cinnamon and bitter chocolate. The tannins grip, then dissolve, while the acidity keeps this red lively and fresh. Drink now through 2015. ... Wine Spectator.

Mit dieser Auslese handsortierter Traubenbeeren aus den ältesten Tinta Fina-Reben der Familie ist Félix Callejo ein wahres Monument eines Weines gelungen. Ein unglaublicher Spitzen-Wein zu einem verhältnismässig sehr bescheidenen Preis!

Kräftiger, lagerfähiger Reserva, mit intensiven Aromen nach roten Früchten und balsamischen Noten. Der Familienbetrieb Callejo in Sotillo im spanischen Ribera del Duero produziert seit über 20 Jahren auf höchstem Niveau. Dass es sich um hervorragende, überdurchschnittliche Weine handelt bestätigen die zahlreichen Auszeichnungen, allen voran die kontinuierlich erreichte, hohe Punktzahl von Robert Parker.


Winemaker's Notes:

I am a big fan of Ribera del Duero as it gives me a more obvious and hedonistic expression of Tempranillo. The estates have adopted the new world approach to winemaking and vineyard management. And in my eyes, the wines are dependably delicious. Bodegas Felix Callejo is all of these descriptors. This modern red marries cocoa-dusted oak with ripe fruit flavors of blackberry and black cherry, along with the mineral and light earthy notes typical of the region. Well-structured but accessible now. Drink now through 2015. 200 cases imported.
