Finca Ygay Limited Edition Gran Reserva Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2009

I think this is a very good vintage. Deep purple color. Wood and raisin on the nose. On the pallet it is very round with smoothed out tannings, and prevalent red fruit. Adequate finish. The wine is at its peak imho. Cheers. — 10 days ago

Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial Rioja Tempranillo Blend 2010

Dark ruby red. Sharp sour cherry and berry fruit. This is good, but honestly is not as good as the ratings claim it is and certainly not worth the price. — 14 days ago

Really nice plushy persistence, especially for a medium bodied wine, and it improved with air, but there’s a touch of unpleasant raisin up front. — a month ago

This Rioja has been tamed by time. The color on this wine is medium ruby with a colorless to brownish rim. The nose is a rustic bouquet of old dry cedar, leather, and tobacco, with scents of dry dark stone fruits and dark berries. Some tertiary wet earth and damp forest floor scents as well.

The mouthfeel is captivating with oak, smoke and vanilla followed by black cherry, prune, and raisins. This is full bodied, dry, and complex with smoothed out but lingering tannings and soft acidity. Low alcohol with a finish that goes on, and on, and on till the break of dawn. You literally keep tasting everything: the dry fruit, the tannings and the acidity.

Decanted and tasted over a two hour period. Handsdown one of the best Riojas I’ve ever tasted; many thanks to Somm Rodrigo Mares at Roothouse in Guadalajara for the exceptional gift. My only wonder is how this would have tasted in twenty thirty per say. I purchase all the wines I review but do keep in mind wine always tastes best when it's gifted. Cheers to more gifts like this one.

Slightly more aggressive Vanilla/coconut oak than the Pecina 2014, but full concentration and a great balance between the acids and the fruit. — 20 days ago
