    Winemaker's Notes:

    Intense garnet red with light brick-red tones on the rim. On the nose it unfolds from the first moment balsamic notes from the wood over a chocolate and coconut background, all of it surrounded with ripen red fruit preserve. It is quite obvious the tobacco and cedar wood presence as well. In the mouth it is full, slightly astringent and with a vivid acidity. Hints of cocoa and roasted wood strengthen, and the persistent finish create a mix difficult to describe: cigar box, fruit preserve, spices, liquorice, broom, leather.

    It pairs perfectly with international food (curries, marinated fish and spicy dishes) and traditional red meats, game and cured cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Reserva is a blend of 90% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo from Rioja Alta that is aged for 20 months in American oak. It has a well-defined, very natural bouquet with dark cherries, bilberry, crushed violets and vanilla pod. The palate is well-balanced with silky smooth tannins, good acidity and a caressing, harmonious finish of truffle, strawberry, cassis and vanilla. This is a sensual Reserva that should age well. Drink now-2018.
