The 2005 Reserva is medium purple-colored with an excellent nose of cedar Asian spices violets balsamic and black cherry. Dense and layered on the palate it is a powerful offering from an excellent vintage that will benefit from another 5-7 years of cellaring and which should drink well through 2030. It is a great value as well as an ideal introduction to traditional Rioja. -JM

Packs a solid punch and finishes... Bright ruby-red. Complex aromatic bouquet of red berries dried cherry sassafras tobacco and cedary oak. On the palate dark fruits are joined by mounting vanilla and oak spice character. Packs a solid punch and finishes with very good spicy persistence. -JR
