Category Red Wine
Region Spain, Rioja

Bright red and garnet with a rim turning to brick showing its extended ageing in barrel and bottle. Complex aromas from its development and ageing, mature ripe black fruit, and vanilla and cinnamon spice, with a deep mineral core. Velvety smooth, harmonious with a fresh finish. Great match for roast meats, foie, game, aged or even blue cheeses.

The 2010 harvest will go down as one of Rioja's greats, and that means wines like this $25 Gran Reserva can be excellent and affordable. It has a nose of mocha, smoke and earthy berry fruits. The palate is layered and texturally complex, while flavors of root beer, baking spice, dried cherry and plum spread out on a smooth finish that is just right in terms of residual tannins and acid. Drink through 2030.

(aged for three years in new and used French and American oak barrels) Vivid red. Ripe dark berries, licorice and a hint of coconut on the nose, along with a subtle floral note. Sweet and broad on the palate, offering pliant blackberry and cherry cola flavors that are sharpened by a jolt of juicy acidity. Shows no rough edges and finishes with good, spicy thrust, harmonious tannins and lingering smokiness.

This round red offers ripe and spicy flavors, with dried fig, tobacco, cedar and cinnamon notes that mingle in a plump texture. Light tannins and juicy acidity give this just enough grip. Drink now through 2022. 270 cases made.
