Wine Review: The nose "Reserva" red from Rioja displays pronounced notes of vanilla and caramel in addition to blue raspberries, orange rind, and hints of licorice. On the palate, the flavor is that of smoking wood, orange rind, hints of eucalyptus, raspberries, and strawberries. The finish has this nice woodsy note that is short lived as the wine is short on the finish. The wine is well made, but it is best to consume it soon. It would pair well with a nice smoked pork loin. – Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Highly polished, tightly wound and elegant wine with refined aromatics. Fine tannins provide a silky texture, leading to a persistent finish of red berries and sweet oak. Blossoms both in body and flavor with decantation and will age gracefully for years, in the manner of top Burgundy.

Organic status: not organic
