Case worthy

Hard not to admire the colour in the glass, the circle of the rim promising a nice mellowing. The taste delivering. Nice mouthful, very smooth finish.

Tasting Note
The 2005 Reserva is a blend of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Graciano from 40-year-old vines aged in American and French oak for 18 months. It has an understated, subtle bouquet of dark cherries, loganberry and just a hint of tobacco and balsamic. The definition is wonderful: great clarity and focus here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, fine tannins and a crisp core of cranberry and raspberry fruit that leads to a subtle leather and tobacco tinged finish. This is very classy. Drink now-2020. Score - 93. (Neal Martin,, Aug. 2012) LCBO
