Winemaker's Notes

Number 87 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

85% Tempranillo, 15% Garnacha Tinta & Graciano

Bright, vivid dark ruby color. Intense bouquet that brings to mind jelly made from fruits of the forest (bilberries) and sweet spice. Good concentration in the mouth with delicious tannins that highlight the wine's rich fruit that has become more complex following aging in barrel. On the whole, an unctuous wine with a pleasant fullness that lingers on the palate with a depth of refined toasted notes. A very elegant wine with superb potential for development.

Just like our Gran Reserva wines, the Reservas are only produced from vintages classed as "excellent" or "very good". The Reservas are matured for 22 months in oak barrels from central France and for 2 years or more in bottle, depending on the date of release.

Marries well with savory fish dishes such as fresh tuna in spicy tomato sauce, refined delicatessen products (chorizo, salami), all kinds of beef (roasted, stewed or grilled), foie gras, duck, partridge, game and mature cheese.

I cracked this puppy open with some friends last night and everyone loved it. I would buy at least half a case ... this is certainly a giftable wine. :-)

This wine is proof of what a great year 2001 was for Rioja. Fantastic with steak. Let it breathe a bit... and enjoy.

Heavy, almost musky aged fruit and barrel flavor. You can taste its age. 3 1/2 stars. I know some would enjoy this wine more than I, as I prefer a cleaner finish.
