Winemaker's Notes

Red wine made from Tempranillo grape bunches. Comes from old vines with a reduced production. Grapes are destalked and selected by hand, grape by grape, using sorting and vibration tables.

Dark concentrated cherry red wine, lively and potent in nose with leather, liquorice and black pepper aromas. The primary compote fruit aromas are maintained. Balance between its tannins and acidity. A full body with an elegant bitter finish. It long persists on the palate. inviting you to continue enjoying it.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2003 Reserva went through malolactic in barrel followed by 18 months in new French oak. Dark ruby colored, it is a bit muted aromatically but with coaxing gives up notes of toasty oak, mineral, tobacco, and blackberry. On the palate, it is quite firmly structured but balanced. It has plenty of flesh, spicy black fruit flavors, and solid length. This wine will benefit from 3-5 years of additional cellaring and drink well through 2020. Bodegas Baigorri is said to be one of the showplace wineries of Rioja, designed by Basque architect Inaki Aspiazu Iza. The Bodegas ferments its wines with native yeasts and uses only French oak. "
