A rich crimson in colour. Subdued dusty plummy notes. On the palate savoury plum with earthy notes - mellow and soft with totally resolved Tannins - medium plus to profound intensity - at its peak I haven’t had many aged Riojas but this was a beautiful wine. Delicious with teriyaki lamb at China Doll restaurant, Sydney.

Deep red color, milky, medium persistence, balsamic on smell. Well structured. Very easy to drink.

Roda Reserva 2010: meaty, leather, light vanilla. Sweet plum, strawberry, quite spicy. Fuller bodied, but with decent grip, chewy tannin, light on acid. Meaty, leather, notch of vanilla with oak, cedar and a faint hint of tobacco. Much more structure than normal. Has a faint hint of tradition with power, and intensity. 91

Clear medium intensity garnet, thin legs. Clean nose with medium intense aromas of black cherry and prunes with hints of tobacco and saddle leather. Still developing. Dry, medium+ acidity, medium tannin and alcohol, pronounced flavours of prunes and Christmas cake. Long finish but oak and fruit flavours still coming together. Very good and will be better in a few years time.

Sour black cherries, leather, bay leaf, dried tobacco, roasted plums, eucalyptus, menthol, cinnamon, vanilla bean. Excellent acid/rough velvet tannin balance, silky texture, lush full bodied, long complex herbal/smoky/spicy finish. Drinking good now, recommended for Cab Sauv drinkers. Great cellaring potential.

Необычайно мягко и пряно, но постояв немного теряет в аромате и становится проще. Тем не менее первое впечатление очаровывает

Serious and layered with beautifully integrated oak smothered in rich black fruit, wet tabacco leaf
In the mouth there is more heat, intensity of black fruit, finely structured tannin with a fine mid palate and fresh black fruited finish.

Modern spin of Tempranillo, well.made with classic notes mixed with ripe, more intense fruit. Medium to full bodied with good structure and ample acidity.
