Winemaker's Notes

#91 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2011

Red cherry color with touches of garnet. The aromas are complex and elegant with notes of sweet spices such as nutmeg, as well as nuances of balsamic and a ripe fruit background. The wood is well integrated. The palate is broad and well structured with nuances of ripe fruit and licorice that come alive with the well integrated sweet tannin. The finish is harmonic and persistent.

This is the ideal accompaniment to red meat, roast beef, cheeses and chocolate desserts.

Critical Acclaim

"Tobacco, licorice, raisin, dried cherry and a puff of smoke give this healthy gran reserva an inviting, traditional bouquet. The palate is lively yet smooth, with integrated acidity pushing mature flavors of berry, plum, caramel and chocolate. A classic Rioja that is ready to drink. "
91 Points

"A lovely 2001 for current drinking, this layers bright red cherry flavors over dark spice. It's clean and a little thick in the middle, with lasting cherry-wood smoke in the end. For a thick-cut pork chop."
91 Points

"Still lively and spicy, this racy wine delivers cherry, dried cherry, tobacco, balsamic and leaf notes, with well-integrated tannins and bright acidity. Maturing, but still has life. Drink now through 2015. 15,000 cases made."
90 Points

"Bright red. Attractive aromas of candied cherry, plum and cedar, with vanilla and clove notes coming up with air. Sweet, open-knit and nicely focused, offering palate-staining red and dark berry flavors and mounting vanilla and cocoa qualities. A musky herbal quality lingers on the long, sweet, sappy finish. There's a decadent quality to this wine that calls for lamb or a piece of dry-aged steak."
