    Winemaker's Notes:

    2001 is one of the top rated Rioja vintages in recent memory. Weather was hot and extremely dry throughout the growing season resulting in wines of great concentration and extraction. The 2001 is dark in color while showing the early stages of maturity around the edges. Polished and refined on the palate with notes of cherry, cedar, tobacco and leather.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Toasty and elegant from the beginning. The nose breathes Christmas spice and mature berry fruits, while the palate deals a persistent structure and acidity for added spine. Tastes a little rooty and savory, with root beer and chocolate notes to the finish.

    Explosive scents of woodland herbs, chokeĀ­cherries and ripe cherry tomatoes mark the juicy, satisfying flavors of this wine. It has persistence of flavor without excess weight, an elegant and supple memory of cherries. Classical Rioja, this is ready for cabrito asado.

    The 2001 Coto de Imaz Gran Reserva (from a superb Rioja vintage) is a blend of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Graciano aged for 24 months in American oak followed by several years of bottle aging prior to release (the expense of so-doing being one reason why many Rioja producers have abandoned the Crianza, Reserva, Gran Reserva traditional system of oak and bottle aging). It is a complex, restrained, sophisticated offering featuring a bouquet of dried fruits, incense, and floral notes. Smooth-textured, still fresh (from its firm acid structure), and impeccably balanced...

    Bright red. Intense aromas of briary red berries, cherry-vanilla, tobacco and smoky oak spices. Elegant and silky in texture, with bright cherry and redcurrant flavors and no excess weight. Very clean, precise and nervy Rioja, with strong finishing cut, good length and resonating spiciness.
