It feels tight and balanced with toasty peppery flavors of cassis and black cherry. It's long toasty and chocolaty on the finish with layered spice accents. Drink now through 2016. - M.S.

Bright ruby. Pungent aromas of dried cherry and pipe tobacco, with hints of woodsmoke and vanilla in the background. Chewy dark fruit flavors gain sweetness and weight with air and pick up a suave floral pastille nuance... Bright ruby. Pungent aromas of dried cherry and pipe tobacco, with hints of woodsmoke and vanilla in the background. Chewy dark fruit flavors gain sweetness and weight with air and pick up a suave floral pastille nuance. Finishes very long, with smooth tannins and lingering smoke and peppery spice qualities. -- Josh Raynolds

The 2008 Lanzaga was sourced from a biodynamically farmed Rioja Alavesa vineyard and is also a blend of Tempranillo Garnacha and Graciano aged in oak of various sizes for 14 months. It is a more brooding offering with enough structure to merit an additional 2-3 years of bottle age. - Jay Miller

Jancis Robinson - Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, April 2011
17/20 Sweet blueberry fruit. Cinnamon biscuit spice. Then much fresher and silkier than I expected. Elegant, delicate, fresh and a taut lively long finish. (JH)

This red is light-bodied but muscular with focused flavors of cherry berry herbs and tobacco supported by light firm tannins and lively acidity. Balanced and subtle. Drink now through 2013. -TM
