Tasting Notes:
tasted: February 3, 2015 , Irina Rabinovich
"OK wine, did not love it."
rated: June 1, 2010 , Jay Miller (Wine Advocate)
90 points "The 2005 Reserva is medium purple-colored with an excellent nose of cedar, Asian spices, violets, balsamic, and black cherry. Dense and layered on the palate, it is a powerful offering from an excellent vintage that will benefit from another 5-7 years of cellaring and which should drink well through 2030. It is a great value as well as an ideal introduction to traditional Rioja." Best 2015-2030
rated: October 30, 2010 , Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
90 points "Bright ruby-red. Complex, aromatic bouquet of red berries, dried cherry, sassafras, tobacco and cedary oak. On the palate, dark fruits are joined by mounting vanilla and oak spice character. Packs a solid punch and finishes with very good spicy persistence."
