Viña Herminia Rioja Reserva 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Just arrived! Another testament to the fact that with a little hard work, great wine can be found in almost any price range. We bring you a very special, limited offering that just soars past the QPR (quality/price ratio) test. This Reserva is a subtle, supple wine with quiet but intense echoes of truffle, smoke, dried leaves, spices, cassis, rose petals and saddle leather. This little showstopper has the bottle age for drinking now but can continue to hold in your cellar. Best of all, it's at a price that can't be beat. 93 points Wine Spectator: Powerful yet racy, this youthful red boasts a beam of black cherry and boysenberry fruit, with plenty of licorice, mineral and toast notes. Fresh, harmonious and graceful, in the modern style. Drink now through 2020. (4/30/12)

Located in Aldeanueva de Ebro, the Viña Herminia vineyards extend over the slopes of Monte Yerga, an area which has become an important enological zone because of its micro-climate and vines, from which we obtain wines of great quality, intense colour and a modern character. The new bodega, or cellar, is a modern building in the form of an “H”, the initial letter of the brand. Integrated into its natural surroundings, Most of its structure is underground. The ageing cellar has a capacity of 8.000 barrels, at Viña Herminia we combine the most traditional processes of the D.O. Ca.

Showing much better on day 3 than on day 1. Lite oak, cherry and dark fruit. Nice spice. Good balance. A more modern style Rioja.
