Izadi Reserva Rioja 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

92 Points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate: "A 100% Tempranillo aged 14 months in American and French oak, the 2011 Reserva is an outstanding value showing beautiful black and red currant fruits, high-quality, unsmoked cigar tobacco, licorice and loamy soil undertones. Deep, medium to full-bodied, very pure, rich and concentrated, this is a gorgeous wine to drink over the next 3-4 years..." 07/15 93 Points, Zachys Tailored Buying Team: “It would be a challenge to find such a complete wine as this at this price point - it just does not happen! The Riserva is a rich yet elegant expression of Spain’s noble Tempranillo that opens up to a spectrum of black cherry, some subtle dark fruit, a touch of leather, smoky hints and minerality, licorice, and spices. It is a mouthful, with more fruit purity and less oak than the ultra traditional Riojas offering serious depth and concentration that provides chewy texture and long finish all for under $17!”
