Winemaker's Notes

Number 87 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

85% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha Tinta & Graciano

Bright, vivid dark ruby color. Intense bouquet that brings to mind jelly made from fruits of the forest (bilberries) and sweet spice. Good concentration in the mouth with delicious tannins that highlight the wine's rich fruit that has become more complex following aging in barrel. On the whole, an unctuous wine with a pleasant fullness that lingers on the palate with a depth of refined toasted notes. A very elegant wine with superb potential for development.

Just like our Gran Reserva wines, the Reservas are only produced from vintages classed as "excellent" or "very good". The Reservas are matured for 22 months in oak barrels from central France and for 2 years or more in bottle, depending on the date of release.

Marries well with savory fish dishes such as fresh tuna in spicy tomato sauce, refined delicatessen products (chorizo, salami), all kinds of beef (roasted, stewed or grilled), foie gras, duck, partridge, game and mature cheese.

Heavy, almost musky aged fruit and barrel flavor. You can taste its age. 3 1/2 stars. I know some would enjoy this wine more than I, as I prefer a cleaner finish.

As a Spanish wine lover, I musa say tris is a great tasteful wine. Not many Spaniard can afford to drink tris wine on a daily basis. If you can please do. Also godo wines to drink, coto, and marques de riscal they are wines too godo to be trufe. Among many others.

This wine is so smooth, smells heavenly and impressed my son and daughter in law who have always said they don't care for wine.

A wonderfully well rounded, toasty, smoky flavor, this marries well with strong tastes such as hardy cheeses, roast beefs - enough of a treat that I'm a repeat buyer.

We really enjoyed this full bodied bold wine. It was very rich and fragrant and paired well with dark chocolate.

Have had this one before, but something wasn't right. the cork was very damp and brittle, but the wine wasn't totally ruined. still, i think you can get better wines for this price.

This bottle is like the time after a heavy lunch, between 2:30 and 4:30 in the afternoon, when you're sitting at your desk at work about to fall asleep with nothing to do but check the "erotic services" section of Craigslist to see how many North Korean women have emigrated to your area.
