Wine Spectator 90 points: This polished red delivers mature flavors of dried cherry, forest floor, tobacco and vanilla on a graceful frame. Fresh and lively.
Los Angeles Times, Wine of the Week:
The 2001 is the current release from the family-run winery that dates back 131 years and three generations. The blend is 75 percent Tempranillo with 15 percent Garnacha, the rest made up of Graciano and Mazuelo grapes. Open a bottle a half hour or so before you want to drink it to allow the bouquet of dark berries, chocolate and sweet spices to fully develop. The flavors are complex, the texture silky, with soft sweet tannins. The 2001 is the current release, which means this reserva is mature enough to drink now with pleasure, though it still has many years ahead of it.
