Nose: earthy, oaky, spicy, vanilla, mature red fruit characters (cherry?). Palate: earthy (red earth), spicy, vanilla, oaky, some red fruit characters. Soft, full bodied. Acidity still fresh, almost citrusy/lemony. Long on palate.

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.

Frisch, fruchtig, viel dunkle Frucht (Pflaumen, schwarze Kirschen), eine etwas würzige Note, gefolgt von balsamischen Noten mit ganz dezenten, animalischen Noten im Hintergrund. Nach 5-10 Minuten Luftkontakt verschwindet diese animalische Note fast gänzlich, auch die Würzigkeit tritt in den Hintergrund, dafür kommen die Fruchtaromen stärker zum Vorschein, gefolgt von dezenten Holznoten. Der Wein hat eine mittlere Länge und einen angenehm, fruchtig endenden Abgang.

The 2000 Gran Reserva a blend of 86% Tempranillo 9% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo aged for 26 months in American and French oak has a dusty leathery nose with touches of soy. The palate is nicely balanced with leathery black fruit and a dry smooth licorice-tinged finish. Drink now-2018. - Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Dark red. Pungent, oak-spiced aromas of dried red fruits, vanilla and rose, with a cedary overtone. Smooth and sweet, with vibrant redcurrant and cherry-vanilla flavors given depth by notes of licorice and bitter chocolate. Closes with gentle tannic grip and very good length, leaving smoke and cherry compote notes behind.

This aged wine hits most of the right keys. Itandrsquo;s sexy and racy on the bouquet, with tobacco, orange peel, rooty cherry and tree bark aromas. Itandrsquo;s a bit sharp and lean in the mouth at this point, with flavors of tomato, raisin, dry berry, cocoa and spice. Gets more acidic as it sits. Drink or hold.
