Editorial Reviews for Bodegas Ramon Bilbao Tempranillo Rioja Rioja Gran Reserva
Earthy and funky at first with eggshell and soil notes, this blossoms slowly with raspberry and wild strawberry tones accented with dried citron peel. Light and fresh in the mouth, this shows some nutty oak up front before laying down a pure, crisp mid-palate replete with crystal clear raspberry fruit. This is high acid without being acidic and displays rare elegance and finesse with its soft and rich yet bright mouthfeel. 93pts
Four and a half glasses
A bit tired but still nice. Needed about an hour to regain some of it's stuffing. Light, spicy with good background of dark fruits. Hurry up and drink the last one! 3.5/5 [NR]
Blend is as follows: Tempranillo 80%, Garnacha 15%, Graciano 3% and Mazuelo 2%. Pale in color, easy to drink, hints of strawberry, slightly metallic aftertaste.
A lovely race car cherry red hue. A very elegant and delicate nose replete with raspberry, strawberry and dried cherries is accented with herbs, cedar and pipe tobacco. A very direct, pure and mildly rustic palate that reflects the dried cherry elements from the nose; has a bright and uplifting acidity. The mildest hint of mineral and finessed tannins complete a pretty package. A wine to enjoy with a meal and a grand example of the traditional style of Spanish winemaking.
Can't beat the price on a 10 year old Rioja!
One of may favorite wines that delivers quality year in and year out. These guys don't f&^k aroudn -- making their wines only in prominent vintages and releasing only when they feel it is appropriate. Within these regards, they are the most serious wine makers on the planet. Now for the wine: What I love so much about Lopez de Hererdia is the bottle diversity and the way it changes as it stays open. There is always a pretty valencia orange nose, laced around this highly unique pomegrante essence that seeps out into your sinuses. Even more so, are the racy and firm Burgundian textures that open up and become alive. This is what wine is supposed to be.
External Reviews for Bodegas Ramon Bilbao Tempranillo Rioja Rioja Gran Reserva
Austere and old-fashioned in style, this wine's color and aroma show some oxidation, while its fruit is lean and light. The flavors are mature and the black tannins have a gentle grip, ready to drink with prime rib.
This polished red delivers mature flavors of dried cherry, forest floor, tobacco and vanilla on a graceful frame. Fresh and lively. Drink now.
Wonderful velvety texture, great depth of fruit, finely balanced, in the flush of youth but with a great future ahead, should you choose to age this wine.
