This is a wonderful 9 year old Rioja Reserva. Showing a great nose, once it opens up, with a great mouthfeel. Complex and exciting.
Showing red and black fruits with earth, wood, spices, peppercorn, chocolates, tobacco, vegetables, earth and black tea.
Needs 90 minutes to open up properly.
Enjoyable by itself or with food. I paired it with cheeses and olives.
Tangy and interesting. Just delicious.
13.5% alcohol by volume.

Wow! Very well integrated. Young - could probably improve for a decade but I love the brightness and freshness. Bags of red fruit well balanced by firm acidity. Toothsome and lush! — a year ago
Very smooth. Good flavor — a month ago
Savory, sturdy tannins,slight coconut in the back end. Textbook Rioja. — 4 months ago
La quinta esencia de la Rioja moderna. Potente, afrutado, largo, equilibrado. Una belleza de etiqueta, pero una botella excesivamente gruesa y pesada que aporta nada al contenido — a year ago
Needs some time to open up. Full-bodied taste with hint of berries. — 2 months ago

Had the 2010 vintage before. 2011 is nearly as good. Plush fruit. Some spice with wonderful finish — a year ago
