Enjoyed this on 12 Feb, 2012 with Peking duck that was great. Magnum bottle (1.5l). In cellar since 6/2010. First some acids on the nose, combined with cherries, oaky wood and some vanilla character. Surprisingly light and well balanced with only light vanilla on the palate, but more red berries and mild oak. However, clearly less of all than on the nose. Light to medium and less power than expected. Difficult to assess what further years of cellaring could do to it. Drinks well already now through 2014. I did expect a bit more, so sligthly disappointed, but elegance and quality is very good.

This Rioja Reserva is medium bodied with smooth tannins and a lovely woody taste. The finish is good, the taste is excellent. Using a real world scenario - If my brother brought a bottle of this over the next time he visits you’d see a decent sized grin on my face. Very nice wine.

Das Aroma ist von balsamischen Noten geprägt, Eichenwürze und Kirschfrucht halten sich die Waage. Am Gaumen gutes Tannin: fest, aber reif und schmackhaft. Auch hier viel Würze und rote Steinfrüchte mit Kräuternuancen, sehr harmonische Weinsäure. Das Finale ist geprägt von dunklen Röstaromen und Kirschfrucht. Ein kraftvoller Klassiker, auf den man sich verlassen kann.

Er hat eine rubinrote Farbe mit dunkleren Schattierungen. Traditionelles Bukett der Rioja Alavesa mit Akzenten von Vanille und getoastetem Eichenholz, komplexes Aroma. Eindruck von Frische in ausgewogener Kombination mit grosser Weichheit im Abgang.

This wine is the epitome of traditional Rioja Reserva. It opens with aromas of citrus peel tobacco earth cherry smoke and rubber. Fresh and medium in body it has oak-based flavors of vanilla and spice on top of reedy red fruit. Oak persists on the finish. Wine Enthusiast.

Cherry-red color with good robe. Spicy, balsamic aromas of great complexity, with notes of ripe dark berries and light toasted nuances. On the palate it is full and tasty, with good structure and rounded, elegant tannins. The finish is long and fresh, with a slight reminder of the fine oak.
