The 2005 Reserva is a ripe, savory wine with a plush palate feel, good depth, and plenty of succulent fruit. It has enough structure to evolve for 1–2 years and will drink at its best from 2012 to 2020.

Opens with leather and rubber and quickly moves to dry cherry, spice and balsam wood. The palate is balanced and healthy, with fairly thick and meaty plum and berry flavors cut by proper acids. Long on the finish, with a tobacco note and lasting berry length.


Winemaker's Notes:

This wine comes from vines with an average age of 30 years. It was fermented at 27ºC under temperature controls, and the must was pumped over on a daily basis. Devatted using gravity, the wine then underwent natural malolactic fermentation after three weeks before being aged for 18 months in one- to three-year-old, medium-toast American and French oak barrels. After the final racking, the wine was lightly clarified, decanted, and bottled directly without any type of filtration.

Tasting Notes:

This expresses dill and coconut aromas in the nose from American oak barrels, which are accompanied by ripe and enthralling red fruits: currants, cherries, strawberries as well as some black currants. There’s quite a bit of mintiness to the wine, though that just adds to its complexity. This is a very refreshing style of Rioja, not sacrificing richness but keeping it in check.
