    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano y Mazuelo.

    A dark cherry colour with good depth. Balsamic aromas with hints of ripe fruit, complex and spicy. The attack is fresh and light, with soft, rounded tannins. The finish proves persistent with some reminders of toasted oak. Its passage through the mouth is pleasant and elegant, fresh and easy to drink.

    Although a good wine it's not for the faint at heart. Strong, better saying, too strong for me. There's personality and a little bitterness in this wine's soul.

    I really liked this wine. For the price, it is quite amazing. Smooth, nothing acrid about it and I can serve this to one certain French friend who spends copious amounts of money on wine and he enjoys it.

    Love the robust spicy flavor of this wine. It definately has a unique character.

    This wine is pleasant to the palate. A soft, velvety smooth texture. Nice hints of spice. A pleasant finish. I just bought the last 10 bottles from my local wine store to have a few for later. This bottle can be enjoyed by itself or is excellent with a nice red meat.

    I feel that this wines main flaw is that it's bouquet does not match is finish. When I smell the bouquet It seems extravagent and exciting, but when i taste it seems to roll quickly off the palate b/c it feels light bodied and doesnt have a lot of tannin or spiciness. Maybe I just like wines that are powerfull like... the Rentas de Fincas i just had from Rioja, or the ViNa Zaco , or even the Terra unica from Valencia.... I'm just learning Spanish wines... but these later three were a little less expensive yet I enjoyed much more as I felt they were more complex.

    I have just started drinking spanish wines, and have been focusing on Rioja. I felt that this wine being 90% Tempirllio it lacks robust character. What I've began to love in Tempirillo's is their expresive, bold, spicy, ecesntric bouquets and flavors... and I feel that this Reserva is more one note, not very complex, and although full bodied, has a short finish and is just not very exciting to me. I'm a novice drinker so take this as you wish... but I feel that it isn't spicy at all and is a little tart. The last reserva I bought was a mix w/ Monstrell and was much better for 1/2 the price.
