Senorio de Pecina Rioja Reserva 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

93+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The 2009 Rioja Reserva from Señorío de P. Peciña is a lovely example of this ripe vintage in the region, as it comes in at a very civilized 13.5 percent alcohol, which was no small feat in this hot summer in Rioja. The wine is wide open and really expressive on both the nose and palate, with the bouquet delivering a fine blend of sappy red and black cherries, toasted coconut, cloves, cigar ash, a complex base of soil, a bit of meatiness and a potpourri of Rioja spice tones in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and velvety on the attack, with a superb core of fruit, still a bit of backend tannin, excellent focus and grip and a long, poised and complex finish. A lovely bottle that is just starting to hit on all cylinders, but will age very long and gracefully and there is absolutely no hurry to be cracking bottles of this excellent Rioja. 2016-2050. (Jan/Feb 2016)
