Editorial Reviews for Faustino Tempranillo Blend Rioja Reserva V

Dark and earthy on the nose with notes of caramel, tobacco, cocoa, leather and chalk over roasted fruit. Smooth on entry with acidity that is just a touch low by Rioja standards, this is smooth and silky with flavors that are a bit simple. The texture will be very appealing to a broad range of consumers as will the simple vanilla, cherry and toast flavors, but this lacks complexity and detail for me. Ends rather abruptly with a leather, almond and cherry pit finale and dry tannins. 85pts

A somewhat smokey yet stinky nose. Wonderfully aromatic. On the palate, it's a big wine. Quite intense, heavy fruit only slightly let down by being a little hot on the back. A very decent effort all round though.

This wine is not one of my favorites. The nose was pleasant and extremely complex, with notes of oak, maple, misty air, damp soil, and mushrooms. The taste, similar to mushrooms. The flavor was bland and simple. I would recommend this wine with a light pasta with Italian sausage, but more of a pesto for sauce. This is more of a spring wine as a transition from the winter crisp white wines to the full bodied reds in the summer. This wine makes an excellent spritzer or as a cider in the winter.

Wow, what a nose! An exceptionally attractive scent, almond and Carmel with a great complexity. The taste is a bit off as its really not what you expect. Sharp tannins with a bit of acid to the front of the tongue. A good wine, but not worthy of the favorites list.

I had this wine for the first time tonight. I instantly could smell the aroma of the Oak and it has a robust flavour. I didn't have it with food, and can't wait to try it with Steak. I feel like I am drinking a good Chianti with this wine. I found it to be good right out of the bottle, but after some breathing time, it was excellent.

rustic earthiness, cedar wood combined with sour red cherries, dried herbal tea leaves

The nose showed dusty potpourri, tomato, black peppercorn and a hint of barnyard. On the palate, I found tight cranberry fruit and fresh soil. A bit one dimensional on the palate but highly enjoyable on the nose.

Deep ruby. Musky, smoky aromas of dried cherry and dark berries, with notes of cedar and cured meat adding complexity. Distinctly wild, offering intense blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and suggestions of chewing tobacco and smoky herbs. Dusty tannins add grip to the finish, which leaves dark chocolate and peppery spice notes behind. Old school Rioja all the way.

In this Reserva, Faustino has created a wine that is loyal to the flavors of traditional Rioja. A pretty, herbal bouquet gives way to a mouthful of red berries. On the finish, a burst of tangy acidity reminds us that true Rioja is made for food.

Garnet red. Ripe fruit, clove and cocoa, with leather and cedar notes. Medium-bodied with well-integrated tannins and a lingering finish. A perfect complement to all types of meats, casseroles and mature, hard cheeses.

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting notes Ripe fruit, clove and cocoa, with leather and cedar notes. Medium bodied with well-integrated tannins and a lingering finish. Wine maker notes With 1,625 acres of vineyards, Faustino’s Reserva and Gran Reserva wines are all estate grown and bottled. The vineyards are located in the upper portion of the Rioja Alavesa, at an altitude of 1,200-1,800 feet. Here, the climate is relatively cool thanks to the maritime influence of the Atlantic Ocean to the north, and the vines thrive in the area’s chalky soil.

<p>This Spanish red is a bright, intense cherry-red with a tawny rim. It is made from 92% Tempranillo and 8% Mazuelo grapes and aged in American oak casks for 16 months.&nbsp;</p>
