At this particular moment, Mario Rotllant and Carmen Daurella came to La Rioja, with the passionate commitment to create a project that would bring something new to the wine world. In the Rioja, where there seemed to be nothing left to achieve, in Haro’s world famous century-old Barrio de la Estacion district, on a terrace jutting into one of the bends in the Ebro river, the beginning of this whole adventure was to take place. What better way to personalize a new project than to name it after the initials of Mario’s and Carmen’s surnames, RO-DA. The first months were made up of making contacts and performing trials; and in 1991 the philosophy of the winery was established. The formation of a high-powered technical team was the best short term means of becoming leading experts among Rioja’s wineries. Only the indigenous red grape varieties, Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano were used. There is total respect for the concept of the vintage, wines from other years are never added to homogenise or freshen up a vintage. Only wines made at our winery are bottled, we never buy-in wine from other cellars. Wines that bring out the very essence of their terroir, the vineyard, soil, climate, landscape, wines made to be enjoyed. There is no hurry to get a return on investment. The constant aim is, with time, to be recognised as producers of one of the greatest wines in the world. In this way, all the means will subsequently be gained to achieve our aims. Twenty or so carefully supervised blocks of vines, spread out among the best eco-systems of the area, from which the 17 best are vinified each year. Old vines are used, guaranteeing the best quality Tempranillo and Grenache grapes. An evaluation system for bought-in grapes was introduced that had never existed before. Harvesting is done in small crates and the first sorting table in the Rioja was introduced here. The vinification takes place in temperature controlled oak vats. Ageing is in 100% French oak barrels. We are committed to research and development, which enables us to head international projects through our active R&D department. In all, an exciting project which we invite you all to discover.

Blackish purple in color. The nose has a jammy black raspberry quality with smoke, vanilla, and cherry flavors. Big drying tannins in the mouth that seem to take away from any fruit that is there. Spicey though hollow on the finish. Maybe needs to open, maybe is lacking in fruit. Too early to tell. 3/5 [NR]

Pure fruit with rich plum, black cherry, chocolate and cinnamon on the nose, followed by hints of oak and smoked meat. Bright acidity and silky tannins are welcomed combinations in the mouth, yet I'm left with a hollowness at mid palate before a rather abrupt finish. Although this hollowness isn't consistent, it's just enough for me to constantly be aware of it. On the palate, there's more spice than bold and brooding red berry flavors. Despite the anomaly on the palate, I still enjoy this wine and would enjoy trying it again.

The 2004 Cirsion is a different kettle of fish, as it should be given the price. It is becoming clear that 2004 was a great vintage in Rioja and this wine is truly special. Dark ruby/purple in color, it exhibits a stunning nose of acacia flowers, bla... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A wine from Rioja in Spain. 2004 Bodegas Roda Cirsion 750ml
