Bodegas Izadi Reserva 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Winery: "Vina Izadi was in fact the Anton family's first winery estate (even before Villacreces) as the family already owned old vineyards in the DOC. Located in Rioja Alavesa, Izadi aims to produce wines that express the character of the local varieties. They are developing their wines to be fresh with a touch of modernity - without forgetting tradition. The Anton Family founded Izadi in 1987 after years of running vineyards in Villabuena de Alaba. The Antons also own a one star Michellin Restaurant (Zaldiaran) in the hamlet of Vitoria. Transformation of the winery happened in 1997, when Don Gonzalo Anton hired Mariano Garcia (winemaker for 30 years at Vega Secilia). Together with Angel Ortega (winemaker for Izadi), they created what we now recognize as the Izadi style: robust yet refined, modern and international. The word Izadi means Nature. The vineyards of Izadi are located deep in the heart of Rioja Alavesa, in the triangle formed by three villages, Villabuena, Abalos and Samaniego. The triangle pictured on the label of Izadi represents these three villages." - Importer

External Review
Vintage: 2001 11/14/2013

The stunning 2001 Expression is 100% Tempranillo from a single vineyard planted in 1927. The wine was barrel fermented and aged 18 months in new French oak before being bottled unfiltered. Purple in color it gives up a high-class nose of smoke spice tar meat blueberry and blackberry. In the mouth the wine is full-bodied nearly seamless fleshy and loaded with layers of ripe fruits and well concealed tannin. The finish lasts for over 45 seconds. Drink this great Rioja over the next 10-15 years. Only 100 cases made it to the USA. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
