A lot of black tea and earthy character. Dark and powerful with considerable tannins for a Rioja of this age. Long, imposing finish. Drink now.

Smoke- and spice-accented cherry and vanilla aromas are complemented by hints of dried flowers, camphor and pipe tobacco. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering juicy red fruit, spicecake and mint flavors that deepen with air. Shows very good energy and appealing floral character on an impressively long, penetrating finish that's given shape by discreet tannins. -- Josh Raynolds

Chocolate, black cherries, dried herbs, and lead pencil/graphite all give way to a rich, chocolaty, medium to full-bodied Gran Reserva that has terrific depth of fruit, ripe tannin, and a beautiful sweetness of fruit. It has another 10-15 years or more of prime drinking.

It produced a meaty 2006, with the umami savor of roasted pigeon and wild mushrooms. Scents of roses and high-toned spice relieve that full-on tannic richness, integrating into the wine’s supple texture.

Give it time to breathe and it becomes more fruity and friendly even as it shows grabby, hard tannins. Baked, brawny, herbal flavors of blackberry and toast finish spicy, with a coffee reprise. Drink through 2025. MICHAEL SCHACHNER

This wine ages for 24-26 months in barrel and is kept in bottle for a further five years. The 2006 is still dark ruby-colored, with an open and expressive nose of leather, cold bonfire, incense and steak tartar notes and a medium-bodied palate with some gritty tannins and very pure flavors where the leather and meaty notes linger in the aftertaste. This is the most classical wine I’ve ever seen from the Eguren family, and an exceptional effort for the 2006 vintage. Modernity meets tradition! Drink now-2022. - LG
