First wine that I tried at the Rioja event. Nice oaky barrel flavors in the aroma and palate. Update: Nov 9, 2011 - Had this in the office. The oaky aromas are very complex, though not as powerful as I remember, with hints of herbs and red chili peppers. The mouth has pretty nice tannins, with a good deal of heat in the back. A little bit of cherry fruit in the middle softens it.

Prototypical Rioja. Fresh and bright with an earthy mineral core. Great aroma of dried cherries and oak. Not too extreme in any facet so it would be a great gift wine. Paired lovingly with a grilled chorizo sausage. Do not decant as it fell apart later in the evening. Drink now.

Had this 2 June, 2011. Very classical Rioja - berry plums with clear leather, cedar and vanilla. Soft oak gives a soft and medium full taste. In fact, for a Rioja, it is surprisingly light, not very tannic and has a gentle aftertaste. Not a lot of depth, but easy-drinking. I liked it.

88 Points Steve Tanzer: Medium red. Shy nose slowly opens to display redcurrant and dried cherry, along with subtle vanilla bean and tobacco qualities. Light, gently sweet red fruit flavors are silky and smooth, with no obvious tannins or rough edges. Understated and nicely balanced, with good finishing lift and clarity. Fans of old-school Rioja should give this a spin.

This had probably been a premier wine a year or two ago but unfortunately it is past its prime now (2009). Nevertheless it remains a good representative of the Rioja bearing all the traditional characteristics of the kind.

    This is truly delicious. It even held up the next day (after pumping out the air and keeping in the refrigerator). At first sniff, it reminds me of being in an old library with the windows opened and a fresh spring breeze, and then, at the end, just when you're not sure, a hint of something sweet, like a freshly opened jar of maraschino cherries or freshly licked red lollipop. The taste is velvety soft, and a little smokey-spice lightly scratching the back of your throat, like someone lightly brushing their finger nails against your skin. As the wine settles on your palate and the aroma makes its way into your nasal cavity, a blast of sweet strawberry syrup with a faint whisper of plum jam. This is SUCH a fun wine!!!

    The nose is all berry fruit with a smooth brightness of red fruit and light oak, that carries onto a refreshing finish.

    This ruby red coloured tempranillo is harmonic, well balanced with hints of oak and vanilla. Soft and long with a superb concentration of fruity flavours, aged for fourteen months in white oak this Rioja has depth and presence, ideal for any occasion.

    Lengthy maceration with the skins followed by extended aging in American oak barrels has created a firm, well-structured wine with notes of wild strawberry and vanilla.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Stylish Gran Reserva and an excellent example of American oak-aged Tempranillo. Lovely amber reflection in the glass, vanilla-spice and coco on the nose, followed by rich, mouth-filling layers of soft red fruits and oak-spice.

    <p>Dark ruby in color, this award-winning rioja is made from 100% Tempranillo grapes selection of the from Rioja Alta and Alavesa. It is a great selection for cellaring.</p>
