Roda I Reserva is assembled exclusively from Tempranillo grapes selected from vineyards yielding firm, structured wines of extended potential longevity. Representing slightly less than fifty percent of production, Roda I is blended in a style to appeal to the Bordeaux drinker's palate.
The wine is deep dark purple in color, with subtle, complex blackberry and raspberry aromas and notes of smoke, herbs and minerals. The tannins are firm and slightly austere yet ripe, balancing expansive fruit concentration on the palate and ending in a long, refined finish.
"There is virtually unanimous agreement that 2001 was a great vintage in Rioja. The 2001 Roda I Reserva has a more saturated color than any of its predecessors. It exhibits an alluring perfume of smoke, incense, spice box, mineral, black cherry, and blackberry. Round, ripe, and perfectly balanced, it has layers of savory fruit, considerable aging potential, and a stylish personality. It can be enjoyed now but its prime drinking window will extend from 2015 to 2031.

It will please a crowd of carnivores at a steakhouse, or a bevy of vegans snacking on grilled wild mushrooms. The tannins are impossibly smooth, and rich as dark roast coffee, adding to the luscious complexity this should develop with age."
