Winemaker Notes

Purple with ruby highlights, this wine shows up-front aromas of raspberries and black cherries with undertones of leather and spice. On the palate, it is expansive and rich.

Pair with lamb and apricot tajines, prime rib, tomato stews, or green lentil-based dishes.

Blend: 90% Tempranillo, 6% Graciano, 4% Maturana Tinta

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 92
Vinous

Dark garnet. Perfumed, spice-accented cherry and dark berries on the nose, with suggestions of vanilla and pipe tobacco emerging as the wine opens up. Palate-coating black raspberry and cherry cola flavors deepen on the back half while maintaining energy. Well-knit tannin's build slowly and steadily on a long, sweet finish that leaves repeating and baking spice notes behind.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Finca Valpiedra Reserva is produced with the grapes from the older vineyards and the clay-rich soils after a soil study. 2012 was a very dry year that delivered concentrated wines. It's a blend of Tempranillo with 6% Graciano and 4% Maturana Tinta, fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in French barriques for 22 months. The nose is quite developed, with notes of candied fruit, leather and spice, and it feels a bit warm. The palate is medium to full-bodied and shows grainy tannins.

Finca Valpiedra, Spain
Finca Valpiedra Winery Image
Finca Valpiedra winery is owned by the Familia Martínez-Bujanda. More than a century has passed since the family’s patriarch, Joaquín Martínez-Bujanda, began making wine in 1889; now his great-grandchildren, Carlos and Pilar, are carrying on the tradition. They realized their dream of fully expressing wine from a single vineyard by opening Finca Valpiedra in 1999.

As a testament to the quality of Finca Valpiedra’s wine, the estate has been inducted into the exclusive organization Grandes Pagos de España. The group’s mission is to defend and propagate the culture of “Pago” wine, meaning wine produced in a specific terroir that reflects the distinct personality of the soil and climate. To become a member, a vineyard must surpass strict quality standards and also exhibit a degree of uniqueness in terms of soil, climate or grape variety that sets it apart from the surrounding area. The association’s membership includes 25 estate wineries throughout Spain.

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.
