Cherry-red colour with good robe. Spicy, balsamic aromas of great complexity, with notes of ripe dark berries and light toasted nuances. On the palate it is full and tasty, with good structure and rounded, elegant tannins. The finish is long and fresh, with a slight reminder of the fine oak. This wine goes well with ham, mild cheeses, casseroles which are not highly spiced, bean and pulse dishes, poultry, red meat, grills and roasts.

Wine AdvocateA classic among classics, the 2010 Reserva is a blend of Tempranillo with 7% Graciano and 3% Mazuelo that is polished and developed showing clean, tertiary aromas and focused flavors framed by fully resolved tannins. It is approachable, easy to understand and finishes with a tasty, lactic note. Believe it or not, there are three million bottles of this wine, the question is how homogeneous are the different lots.
