An impressive wine from old vines. The 2009 has an extra depth of richness and full character. The black fruits go deep into the wine hugely rich while still keeping a dark structure. Powerful and needing aging. - R.V.

The 2009 Reserva is revisited this issue as part of the vertical presented. A big mouthful in this vintage, this is palate-coating and gripping on the finish, showing its power and a burly demeanor that Vallado, which typically leans to the elegant, usually avoids. For all of that, if it is not the most typical Reserva in the lineup, it is pretty good, bursting with flavor, intense, focused and, yes, a little more dramatic than normal. This is coming along very well. It is still nowhere near peak, but it can be approached. - Mark Squires

This lush vibrant red drips with unctuous dark fruit flavors that feature plenty of cocoa powder and spice accents. Well-balanced and fresh with a long rich and creamy finish. Drink now through 2016. -KM
