Winemaker's Notes

Intense and dense cherry-red. Predominating aromas of violets, blackberries, cedar, leather and spice box. On the palate its structure is medium and plays with various fruits and a genuine taste of ripened blackcurrant with a good balance and a pure finish. It shows juicy and flows broadly until a finish that remains a long time.

It pairs perfectly with international food (curries, marinated fish and spicy dishes) and traditional red meats, game and cured cheeses.

90% Riojan Tempranillo, 10% Mazuelo and Graciano.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2004 Reserva is 90% Tempranillo with 5% Mazuelo and 5% Graciano added to the blend. It was aged for 20 months in seasoned American and French oak. Cherry red in color, it offers a complex perfume of cedar, leather, violets, spice box, and blackberry. On the palate it is medium-bodied with plenty of ripe cassis-flavored fruit, silky tannin, good balance, and a pure finish. Give it 3-4 years and drink it through 2020."
