Vina Pomal Rioja Reserva Bodegas Bilbainas 2011

External Review by WineExpress.com:

The Wine Spectator scored it m90 points saying "Ripe fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry mingle with dark chocolate, licorice and toast notes in this round, firm red. Sweettart acidity underlies a slightly hard-candy character, but this is lively and expressive."

Bodegas Bilbainas is a winery with a long history. The origins of the bodega go back to 1859, when Savignon Frères & Cie, fleeing from the ravages of phyloxera, which blighted French vineyards at the time, set up in Haro. In 1901, a group of Bilbao businessmen purchased the winery and created the Bodegas Bilbaínas. Today the winery produces Vina Pomal is one of their most popular and well regarded wines. This Reserva 2011 is 100% Temranillo aged 18 months in American oak barrels, 20% new. Wine Enthusiast Magazine and the Wine Spectator scored it 90 points. Spectator said "Ripe fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry mingle with dark chocolate, licorice and toast notes in this round, firm red. Sweettart acidity underlies a slightly hard-candy character, but this is lively and expressive."
