Vintage: 2004 01/03/2012

Full ruby-red. Highly complex aromas of currant, espresso, celery, exotic coconut and earthy, dusty spices (coriander seed, cumin). Supple and flavorful, with notes of currant, meat, minerals, licorice and fresh herbs. This estatersquo;s wine often reminds me of Cheval Blanc in the early going, and this release is no exception. But here the 2001 vintage has brought a bit more flesh than usual. Persistent, lifted finish. Very interesting juice-and, as always, not your typical Ribera del Duero wine.

Leathery and earthy, with some heavier, muddled characteristics that reflect the vintage. Overall, this wine is not on the same level as the superior 2004, but as it opens it shows a willing mouthfeel and finishing flavors of red currant and cranberry. If you own this along with the 2004, drink this one before the other.

A blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Merlot, the 2001 Reserva enjoyed malolactic in barrel and aging in French oak (much of it new) for 24 months prior to bottling. A complex nose of dried herbs, blueberries, black currants, licorice, and espresso is followed by a ripe, full-bodied, opulent, pure, elegant as well as nuanced wine. It should drink well for 7ndash;8 years.

A dark ruby Tempranillo with plum colored, syrupy legs on the sides of the glass. A traditional, old world red, with concentrated layers of black cherry, cardamon, leather, old wood, and tobacco. Very Bordeaux-like character with cedar, celery, and Worcestershire-type savory flavors. The long finish shows elegant, fine tannins, lush fruit, and a toasty spice. Great complexity.
