This is a little ashy on the nose with hints of arugula, blood and carob adding gentle complexity to the nose. The aromas are more savory than fruity but there is a base of raspberry/blackberry fruit here along with well-balanced briary oak. This is easy to drink texturally but it has the same savory, arugula-like flavors on the palate adding compelling complexity to the round yet nervous wine. There are subtle layers of flavor here. It is a little nutty, a little meaty, but then mineral and taut with a hint of rust coming out on the back end with raspberry fruit, licorice and spiky little tannins. The finish is long and zingy with lovely layering of subtle savory and fruity flavors and just a hint of heat on the finale. This is really attractive. It is not rustic but not modernly smooth either, with a mouthfeel that is zesty, sapid and refreshing. Serve this with red meat like lamb. 90pts

This is quite fruity and intensely aromatic, with a fair amount of oak. Sweet vanilla, subdued stemminess, red cherry and currant fruit with a peppery top note fill the glass. This is slightly volatile on the nose, but only to the point of boosting the aromatics. Smooth on entry, this shows some rather extracted, dry tannins, but there’s fine buffering material in the form of rich, slightly chewy dark fruit that’s a bit gamy. Mostly cherry toned with some black raspberry notes and a bit of spice, the fruit rises on the mid-palate and becomes more perfumed and expressive on the back end. The moderately long finish shows a fine interplay of wood, spice, sweetness and mouthwatering fruit. The fruit wins out on the finale. 91pts

So smooth that I kept taking sips and I forgot that I was going to review this - so of course I had to pour more. Ripe red fruit and great, balanced tannins.

Musty nose with a nuttiness like amaretto, and hints of blueberries and chili peppers. Very well rounded mouth bursting with cherry fruit, and a fairly tart finish. Nice bottle to enjoy on its own.

Extremely ripe fruit on the nose with hints of red pepper spice. Very soft on entry, medium palette and a delightfully smooth finish. Love this!

Nice dark purple color. Aromas range from resiny, to pruny, to something like anise. Very pleasing initial palate. There is some fruit here--blackberry as much as anything--but it doesn't take over. Some dusty earthiness. Nice acid tartness. Firm supporting tannin. US$19.99 at Costco last summer.

Vintage rating : 93E Predicted year : 2013+ (Should reach maximum ageing potential at around 2013, but will keep great for another 10 plus years). RP - 91pts. Upon tasting, I was surprised to see that it was of an intense ruby colour and still quite dark considering the almost 10 years in the bottle. This hints that it could be further aged for a while without loosing it's flavour such as; on the nose, it still had very ripe red fruits - strawberry and cherry, in the mouth the tannins still offer a great kick with spices and black pepper. Again in the mouth, the ripe red fruits reveal to be more akin to plums. The balance is quite superb with acidity that rounds things off with the spices and tannins.

A Tempranillo wine from Rioja in Spain. 2004 Bilbao, Ramon Rioja Gran Reserva 750ml

Vintage: 2001 04/21/2010

A deep ruby-red with a brick-red rim. The aromas of bonfire and dried plum spread along the palate where the hints of stewed fruit take over. In the mouth it is lively and leaves a memory of raisins which sweetens its spicy pass and show its harmony with noble woods.
