I'm a big fan of Rioja Gran Reserva, especially after having pretty good ones from this vintage, but this one didn't meet my expectations unfortunately,,, Way too much oak, leatherly smoke, overwhelming fruits flavors. There're better valued Reserva and Crianza out there.

This has to be our favourite Rioja at the moment. We haven't yet found anything to beat it. Full bodied, warm and woody.

Rusty red in color with tobacco and dried red currant notes on the nose, this Rioja, at over a decade, shows a delightful amount of evolution. With some oak on the finish, this bottle deserves, even requires, a well-prepared London Broil.

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Brilliant, medium-to-high depth. Cherry red in the center of the glass with a garnet and tawny rim. Aroma: Intense and complex to the nose. Aromas of spiced and new wood toasty, leather, vanilla and balsalmi against a mild alcoholic background. Palate: Well-finished. Powerful, enveloping tannic notes in the mouth that develop into an elegant meatiness and just the right acidity to match any dish.
