Review

Made from grapes grown in the winery's own vineyards at Mendavia (Rioja Baja).

The wine is an attractive ruby-red colour and of medium to high density in appearance. The nose displays a toasty, fruit aroma with traces of coconut and toffee, and shows moderate intensity. Powerful, balanced and spicy on the palate, it has notes of ripe fruit and a lengthy finish.

Matured for 20 months in new American oak barrels and subsequently for 24 months in bottle.

Great vintage

Compared to 2014 this 2015 Reserva is on the next level. More refined, complex and balanced. Extremely good price / quality ratio.
