Medium cherry red color with strongly perfumed rose and a hint of dust on the nose. Very soft, light, and thin on the palate with a bit of fruit, smoke, leather and oak. Agreeable and easy to drink.

Fruity sour pepper with lots of heat and spice. ¡Caliente!

Oak, cocoa and barnyard on the nose, smokey and citrusy notes on a palette full of deep, earthy beets, subtle finish with more earth overtones. Might benefit from laying down.

This is an interesting bottle. Plenty of earth, prune, sour cherry and oak. Refined and smooth, a little hot but not over powering.

The 2005 Reserva is medium purple-colored with an excellent nose of cedar, Asian spices, violets, balsamic, and black cherry. Dense and layered on the palate, it is a powerful offering from an excellent vintage that will benefit from another 5-7 years of cellaring and which should drink well through 2030. It is a great value as well as an ideal introduction to traditional Rioja.

Situated majestically within the Alavesa district, this bodega is one of the oldest estates in La Rioja. Traditional in style, the wine focuses more on subtlety and terroir than on ultra-extracted fruit and a lumberjack's sensibility to oak. As a Reserva, the wine displays a developed ruby color and mature, layered aromatics. Roasted coffee, saddle leather, toast, dill, lavender and hints of tobacco are wonderfully fragrant and delineated on the nose. The palate reveals charming flavors of baker's chocolate, prunes, dates, damson, vanilla and blackberries expressed in a soft and restrained manner. Aged for two years in large barrels and one year in bottle, the oak influence is evident, yet well integrated amidst medium texture, weight, and acidity. It is unheard of to find reserva Rioja of this quality at this price.

Bright ruby-red. Complex, aromatic bouquet of red berries, dried cherry, sassafras, tobacco and cedary oak. On the palate, dark fruits are joined by mounting vanilla and oak spice character. Packs a solid punch and finishes with very good spicy persistence.


External Review

A dark cherry colour with good depth. Balsamic aromas with hints of ripe fruit, complex and spicy. The attack is fresh and light, with soft, rounded tannins. The finish proves persistent with some reminders of toasted oak. Its passage through the mouth is pleasant and elegant, fresh and easy to drink.

A more refined style of Spanish wine, this offering possesses aromas of dried berries and earth. The midpalate is filled with dense flavors of fig and dark roots, contained within a rich, full body. As a result of prolonged barrel aging, the finish has flavors of vanilla and toasty oak.


External Review

Scents of blackberries, coffee and spicy oak jump out at you from the start. Medium to full-bodied, this wine is loaded with mouthcoating tannins that are balanced by lush fruit flavors.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Complex aroma of spices with a predominance of liquorice, while the oak remains discreet. Intense color with a slight accumulation of yellow, masked by the powerful red hue of the grape. On the palate, the impression of acidity on the tip of the tongue is immediately reflected towards the back by a touch of persistent tannin. Meanwhile soft on the finish, with no fixation at the back of the mouth and a lasting sensation of toast developing underneath the tongue.
