Bodegas Roda Doca Rioja Roda I Reserva 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Kräftiges Kirschrot mit schwarzvioletten Reflexen, in der Nase enorm konzentriertes Bukett mit reicher Frucht, Cassis, Holunder, Kirsch und Brombeere, feine Rstaromen, Vanilletouch, am Gaumen noch voller jugendlicher Kraft, bestens integriertes Tannin, zarte Drrobstaromen, dunkle Beerenfrucht und Schwarzkirsch, würzige Noten, langer Nachhall - tolles Potenzial.

At this particular moment, Mario Rotllant and Carmen Daurella came to La Rioja, with the passionate commitment to create a project that would bring something new to the wine world. In the Rioja, where there seemed to be nothing left to achieve, in Haro’s world famous century-old Barrio de la Estacion district, on a terrace jutting into one of the bends in the Ebro river, the beginning of this whole adventure was to take place. What better way to personalize a new project than to name it after the initials of Mario’s and Carmen’s surnames, RO-DA. The first months were made up of making contacts and performing trials; and in 1991 the philosophy of the winery was established. The formation of a high-powered technical team was the best short term means of becoming leading experts among Rioja’s wineries. Only the indigenous red grape varieties, Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano were used. There is total respect for the concept of the vintage, wines from other years are never added to homogenise or freshen up a vintage. Only wines made at our winery are bottled, we never buy-in wine from other cellars. Wines that bring out the very essence of their terroir, the vineyard, soil, climate, landscape, wines made to be enjoyed. There is no hurry to get a return on investment. The constant aim is, with time, to be recognised as producers of one of the greatest wines in the world. In this way, all the means will subsequently be gained to achieve our aims. Twenty or so carefully supervised blocks of vines, spread out among the best eco-systems of the area, from which the 17 best are vinified each year. Old vines are used, guaranteeing the best quality Tempranillo and Grenache grapes. An evaluation system for bought-in grapes was introduced that had never existed before. Harvesting is done in small crates and the first sorting table in the Rioja was introduced here. The vinification takes place in temperature controlled oak vats. Ageing is in 100% French oak barrels. We are committed to research and development, which enables us to head international projects through our active R&D department. In all, an exciting project which we invite you all to discover.

Floral scents of thistle and violet mix with other meatier aromas of beef bouillon on this very complex and interesting nose. Smooth and velvety texture with a bit of chocolate and coffee, and a nice long finish.

Floral and meaty at the same time on the nose. Loads of acidity and a good bit of tannin give the wine a nice structure. Coffee, chocolate and medicine on the long finish.

Sweet Lundens cough drop on the nose. Peppery and bloody with spicy eucalyptus and a quick but dry spiced finish.

Plum and then pollen-heavy flowers on the nose, probably purple ones, likely with thorns; there's grilled meat somewhere just beyond them. Wonderfully smooth with dark fruit up front and bitter chocolate down below. Soil, spice on the long finish.
