Winemaker's Notes

This wine holds an intense brick red color with a slight rustiness along the rim from the age. For a 1996, it surprisingly holds the color a much younger wine though. The bouquet displays persistent aromas of ripe fruit, clove and cocoa, with leather and cedar notes. Delightfully rich and inviting. This is a medium-bodied wine, velvety and smooth, with supple tannins and a seductive long lasting finish.

This is 100% Tempranillo the main varietal of Rioja. This Reserva is well matched for red meat, game, casseroles and hard, flavorful cheeses.

Martinez selected 125 acres in the Laguardia region of the Rioja Alavesa, widely considered the finest portion of the Rioja, as the site of his prized estate. As dictated by Campillo's strict aging requirements and precise standards of quality, only a small fraction of these bottles are ready for release each year – approximately one in every 27.
