Bodegas Roda Tempranillo Blend Rioja Roda Reserva 2008

Member Review by Kirsy:

At first whiff delicious smells of cheese, then come the caramel notes, hints of vanilla and licorice, and a whole case of mixed ripe dark berries. On the tongue, lots of ripe berries, dark chocolate, and a bit of coffee. Well balance acidity, firm tannins. Cant wait to have it with a juicy steak.

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.

Soft and smokey. Like a pinot meets a rhone red. Perfect for opening now.

Dense crimson red core with a medium dark red rim. Aromas of Rainier cherry, vanilla and cedar dominate the nose along with restrained undertones of fresh picked herb, which add a great deal of complexity to the nose. Mildly tannic but extremely well... Alex Lallos. A Tempranillo wine from Rioja in Spain. 2004 Roda, Bodegas Rioja Roda I Reserva 750ml

Dense crimson red core with a medium dull ruby rim. The nose showcases abundant red curry followed by black pepper and cedar.
