Winemaker's Notes:

The wine shows beautiful, violet tinged ruby color. There are persistent aromas and flavors of blackberry and licorice-typical of the Tempranillo grape-as well as subtle vanilla spice from its aging in oak from Allier. The concentrated, complex body shows great balance and length, giving way to a persistent, flavorful finish.
My Notes:

About Bodegas La Vicalanda:

Bodegas Bilbaínas specializes in making vintage wines, and is regarded as a leader when it comes to setting wine styles. Some of the winery’s flagships are among the most famed and emblematic wines of the Rioja, foremost of which are Viña Pomal and La Vicalanda.

The La Vicalanda label is made with Tempranillo from 35-year-old vines on one plot of the superb Viña Pomal vineyard. This reserva is a model of the modern Rioja.
