Winemaker's Notes

The wine strikes a complex balance of ripe strawberry fruit and developed flavors like spice, leather and vanilla. All this plays out on a palate of silky tannins, which have been smoothed over by time.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Reserva was aged for 18 months in French and American oak and 2 years in bottle prior to release. Dark ruby red in color, it exhibits an already complex perfume of toasty oak, pencil lead, Asian spices, truffle, leather, and assorted black fruits. Structured, savory, and ripe on the palate, this nicely proportioned Reserva will evolve for 2-3 years and provide enjoyment through 2025. "
