Winemaker Notes

The Old Vine Gran Reserva has an intense dark ruby red color, with a brick red shimmer at the edges –a sign of long aging. Complex aromas include spicy notes of black pepper, clove, nutmeg, balsamic fragrances and persistent toasted notes and coffee, combined with hints of fruit and liqueur. Due to its acid freshness, rich phenols, glycerine, and well-structured tannins, it is balanced and persistent, lengthening on the palate.

This wine is ideally served at room temperature to accompany beef, steaks, cured meats, braised dishes and mature cheeses.

RP 88
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2004 Old Vines Gran Reserva is 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in barrel. Deep crimson-colored, it gives up an aromatic array of cedar, earth notes, mineral, black cherry, and blackberry. Forward, succulent, and lengthy, it has enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years but can be enjoyed now. All of these are good to very good values.

Navarro Lopez’s new releases offer considerable value.

Navarro Lopez, Spain
The Bodegas Bemvinas winery was founded in 1904 as a modest family enterprise by Don Juan Megia Sanchez. The Spanish Civil War changed the family's fortune when the winery was confiscated by the Republican in 1936 and not returned to the Megia family until 1940--without the wine. The family started over, selling whole vintages in barrels. By the 1970s, the winery passed to the last living Megia, who sold it in the 1980s to the current owner, Don Doroteo Navarro Donado.

Don Doroteo immediately brought about a total re-vitalization and modernization of the property, which he renamed Bodegas Navarro Lopez.

A strict quality policy, moving from barrels to bottles, emphasizing single-vineyard and mono-varietal wines carrying the D.O. Valdepenas, as well as investments in state-of-the art winery equipment and technology, have been the keys to the success of Navarro Lopez as a rising star in the production of high-quality wines, in a region that is starting to be recognized as an important wine regions in Spain.

In the early 1990s, Don Doroteo bought two other wineries in the area, Bodegas Canadas and the Bodegas Nieto. The Estate consists today of 150 hectares, mostly planted to Tempranillo, Garnacha and Macabeo grapes, with over 8 million liters produced.

Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Most planted and respected is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
