Winemaker's Notes

A wine that clearly demonstrates the potential, quality and balance of a stellar Rioja, it is deep cherry-red in color and contains enticing aromas of ripe forest berries, black licorice candy and lightly toasted oak. This multi-terroir, monovarietal wine is ample on the mid-palate and has very round, voluminous tannins. With a long and complex finish, this wine can age for up to 15 years and will pair well with a multitude of dishes.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Vinas de Gain red, from a very balanced vintage is made with Tempranillo sourced from different vineyards in Laguardia averaging 30 years of age. It is fermented in open stainless steel tanks and aged in French oak barrels for one year. It’s a little closed and requires some time to start showing its nose. The palate is explosive, with clean acidity and balance, pure, hedonistic with great depth. It slowly develops some minty, balsamic aromas coating the red fruit, with even notes of fennel. 150,000 bottles were produced. Drink 2014-2022. "

"Everything about this highly functional Rioja is nice. The nose is fresh, minerally and shows complexities like cinnamon aromas and herbs. The palate is snappy and racy, but not shear or acidic. Flavors of plum, berry and oak are pure and bold, while the finish is dry, lightly toasted and shows minerality and coffee notes. Drink through 2019. "
91 Points

"Assertive red fruit and floral scents are brightened by a minerally nuance. Spicy, penetrating and gently sweet, offering bitter cherry and raspberry flavors and a touch of rose. The long finish features gentle tannic grip and very good spicy lift, leaving a cherry pit note behind."
