Winemaker Notes

Cherry red color with thin terracotta edge showing its longer barrel age. Aromas of mature black fruit, toffee and balsamic as well as some mineral notes. This is a silky wine, but fresh and refreshing as well as elegant and persistent.

Perfect for matching any grilled meats, stews or barbequed meats. It also accompanies charcuterie, steaks and even game and stronger cheeses.

Blend: 90% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 90
James Suckling

Inoffensive if not particularly vivacious, this trades in dried redcurrants and vanilla. The palate has a good and surprising serving of fruit, and the tannins are resolved, but not overly drying. Drink now.

WE 89
Wine Enthusiast

A lightly oaked nose offers aromas of mossy berry fruits, earth notes and chocolate. On the palate, this Reserva from a warm vintage feels pinched. Bold, slightly tart berry flavors are superficial, while underneath touches of prune and raisin precede a finish with helpful latent acidity.

Carlos Serres was a pioneer in Rioja. In 1896 he established one of the first wineries in Haro, the heart of Rioja. He was an instrumental figure in promoting the early exports of Rioja wines. Today, the Bodega remains family-owned and operated and is one of only a few centenarian producers in Rioja. The estate is Southeast of Haro, just 800 yards from the winery and spreads out over nearly 150 acres of premium Rioja Alta vineyards with vines average 20+ years old. Bodegas Carlos Serres sets out to remain one of the most internationally-renowned and influential wineries in Spain.

Rioja

Tempranillo

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.
