Winemaker's Notes

This wine is a bright, ruby color, with brick red hints. The aromas are intense and complex, with vanilla and aromatic herbs and spice notes perfectly blended with mature red fruit. The palate is balanced, with an elegant structure carrying through to a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"There's good density to the black cherry, leafy and spicy flavors in this balanced red, remaining lively, even delicate, with racy, citrusy acidity, supple tannins and a floral finish."
89 Points

"The 2009 Vina Eguia Reserva is quite similar to its Crianza sibling from 2010, a little more powerful but not necessarily better, with perhaps a more developed bouquet showing some Mediterranean herbs, dark ripe cherries and black pepper. The palate is crisp, with good acidity and length."
