and potent in nose with leather, liquorice and black
pepper aromas. The primary compote fruit aromas
are maintained. Balance between its tannins and
acidity. A full body with an elegant bitter finish. It

"The 2003 Reserva went through malolactic in barrel followed by 18 months in new French oak. Dark ruby colored, it is a bit muted aromatically but with coaxing gives up notes of toasty oak, mineral, tobacco, and blackberry. On the palate, it is quite firmly structured but balanced. It has plenty of flesh, spicy black fruit flavors, and solid length. This wine will benefit from 3-5 years of additional cellaring and drink well through 2020. Bodegas Baigorri is said to be one of the showplace wineries of Rioja, designed by Basque architect Inaki Aspiazu Iza. The Bodegas ferments its wines with native yeasts and uses only French oak.
