Winemaker Notes

The color is brilliant and clear; ruby with slight russet hues. There are clean, intense aromas on the nose with prevailing notes of red fruit intermingled with tobacco, truffle and vanilla. The palate shows a supple, smooth texture with a long finish.

Wine & Spirits
Part gamey and old-fashioned in its firm structure, part contemporary in its succulent fruit and supple texture, this is heady with cayenne pepper spice and zesty with ripe fruit that keeps juicing up in the finish. It feels savory and balanced, ready to decant for grilled baby lamb chops. Best Buy.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
There might be more balsamic and cigar-ash aromas in the 2010 Viña Pomal Reserva compared to the selection of 106 barrels. They were bottled separately, but otherwise the wines have a similar profile. I think more time in wood is not better, and the 18 months here is more than enough. In fact, I feel more freshness and drinkability in this wine. It is a good, commercial Rioja.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This is the epitome of a composed, approachable Rioja reserva; it’s earthy and dry up front, with aromas of fine herbs, brandied cherry and plum. A solid palate houses oaky flavors of vanilla and butter in addition to plum and currant, while the finish is dry, elegant and oaky enough to give off a popcorn-like character. Drink through 2022.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Firm and focused, this red offers a core of black cherry, with notes of coffee, licorice, mineral and herb. The tannins are light but supportive, the acidity fresh. Lithe, graceful and lively. Drink now through 2020.

Bodegas Bilbainas, Spain
Bodegas Bilbainas Winery Video

Bodegas Bilbainas, one of the ten oldest wineries in Rioja, was founded in 1901 in Haro's iconic Train Station District (Rioja Alta). Its origins go back to 1859, when French producers established in Rioja to produce and export red wine to France. Four decades later, Santiago Ugarte, a businessman from Bilbao, would take up the reins.

Bodegas Bilbainas defines itself as a classically styled winery, which was pioneer 100 years ago in understanding winemaking and viticulture in a very contemporary way, giving primer importance to the vineyards, the terroir and the grapes. Specialized in making vintage wines, Bodegas Bilbainas produces some of the most famed and emblematic wines from Rioja, as La Vicalanda or its flagship brand, Vina Pomal.

Nevertheless, Bilbainas has also strong historical links with the production of sparkling wines since they started to export it to France during World War I. Moreover, they have never abandoned their pioneer spirit, focusing their innovation efforts in surprising estate wines, which aim to find the true expression of varieties as Tempranillo, White Tempranillo, White Maturana, Graciano or Grenache.

Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
