Tech Sheet


Occasional Wine Note: Great value Rioja Reserva. Dark fruit, subtle violet, a bit herbacious, and lots of tannin. Solid.

  • James Suckling

    Score: 93

    Aromas of ripe plums and blueberries with hints of blue flowers, licorice and dried herbs. Medium-to full-bodied with plush tannins and savory fruit character. Polished and structured, with notes of chocolate and minerals to close. Drink of hold.

  • Wine Advocate

    Score: 91

    The 2018 Reserva, a blend of Tempranillo with 9% Graciano, still feels quite oaky after 15 months in French and American oak barrels, half of each. It has good ripeness for a cooler vintage, at 14.1% alcohol, and has a creamy mouthfeel with tannins and plenty of oak-related flavors in the finish. For fans of oaky modern Rioja.
