Dense, dark ruby color. Refined and complex bouquet with a hint of cherry, vanilla, and soft toasted notes. Balanced in the mouth where silky, welldefined tannins combine with luscious flavors to reveal a pleasant fullness. This Reserva follows firmly in the footsteps of the previous 2012 vintage that won excellent awards.
Blend: 85% Tempranillo, 10% Garnacha Tinta, 5% Graciano
TP 93 Tasting Panel
This bottling is only produced in the finest vintages from old vines. Earth, cedar, and black tea are deep and shadowy on the nose, while high acidity dries the palate with wisps of slate and desiccated rose petals. It’s regal with tremendous energy and a sense of gravitas.
TA 93 Tim Atkin
Year in year out, this Reserva blend of Tempranillo with 10% Garnacha and 5% Graciano delivers the goods. Youthful, scented and deeply coloured, with ageing only in French oak, it has focus and intensity with lots of dark berry fruit and a sheen of vanilla spice. 2019-24. Alcohol: 14.5%
JS 92 James Suckling
A wealth of ripe dark plums and cherries on offer here with earthy nuances, too. The palate has a very succulent, juicy and fresh feel with plenty of very juicy, rich and succulent fruit to close. Drink now.
WE 90 Wine Enthusiast
A deep nose with solid berry aromas, oak and spice is what you'd expect from a reserva from this reliable bodega. Full tannins make for a rubbing mouthfeel, while this tastes of berry fruit and distant chocolate. Savory flavors take over on a heavy, tannic finish. Drink through 2024.
