#75 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012
Attractive, vivid ruby red color. Intense, fragrant bouquet with a depth of blackberries, blackcurants, blueberries and vanilla. Deliciously full and complex in the mouth with silky smooth tannins. This reserva highlights the character of a unique vintage that is rich and structured, whilst combining the elegance of a splendid wine that promises to develop superbly over the next few years.
Good everyday wine for the price.
Smooth & Supple
First pour was aerated and the nose wasn't intense as indicated. After 30 minutes in the glass the nose opened up a bit but was of mild blueberries.The wine was soft and smooth with a medium finish. I wish I had tried this wine in 2011 or earlier. It must have been a dynamo. Very approachable and easy going.
