Above all an amazing value at less than $10 a bottle. Spicy cherry nose. About 70% spicy with perfectly balanced brilliant cherries and obese powerful tannins.

Decanted around 3 hours, changed from a flat murky wine into a smooth and concentrated, yet clean flavor. Nice oak and coffee nose with notes of tobacco and cherry. Cream and vanilla on the palette with strong notes of ripe cherry. Really long finish that is very pleasant, predominantly cherry with notes of cola, vanilla and cocoa. Great value, even though I paid closer to $12 for this bottle.

This is a standard issue at a tapas bar I frequent. A bold and healthy bodied wine. Simple and great with food as it doesn't compete.

A bit tight and a lot of oak on the nose upon opening but after decanting for 30 mins really showed nicely. Great red fruit up front of cherry and raspberry and a nice long mineral finish that got better over time. By far one of the best $10 bottles of wine in memory and a great example of a tempranillo.

Lengthy maceration with the skins followed by extended aging in American oak barrels has created a firm, well-structured wine with notes of wild strawberry and vanilla.

The 2005 Coto de Imaz Reserva is predominantly Tempranillo with a dollop of Graciano aged for 18 months in American oak. Dark ruby red with a fragrant nose of cedar, rose petal, cherry, and cassis that jumps from the glass, on the palate it displays an elegant personality, good concentration, savory flavors, and enough structure to evolve for several years. It should be at its best from 2012 to 2020. Much like the 2004, this wine straddles traditional and modern lines. The nose offers light raisin, spearmint, brick dust and leafy red fruit aromas, while the palate may seem acidic and sour to some but reflective of old Rioja to others. Strong American oak accents of dill, coconut and vanilla are present on the palate and finish. Drink now through 2012. - M.S. This traditional-style red shows dried cherry, tobacco, spice and leaf flavors, enlivened by bright acidity and supported by gentle tannins. Supple, balanced and fresh. Drink now. 3,000 cases imported. -TM

Winemaker's Notes:

On the palate, there's a range of delicate red fruit (strawberry and red cherry) with smoky vanilla notes from the new American oak. Soft tannins are balanced against fresh acidity in the mouth.
