Review

Prado Enea is a classic, text-book Gran Reserva, and one that any good wine enthusiast should know. A great red which, despite its strength, conveys its power in a delicate, subtle and most pleasant way.

The Prado Enea grapes originate from Muga's coolest vineyards and, along with those of Torre Muga, are the last to make their way into the winery, all down to the altitude prolonging the maturation period. The must ferments in oak tanks using native yeasts and without any form of temperature control. Maceration tends to last for up to twenty days and ageing for as long as 7 years: one year in oak casks, 3 years in oak barrels and three more years in bottle.

In appearance it boasts a lovely cherry colour with high density. On the nose it combines clear-cut hints of well-ripened fruit with the spiciness derived from oak ageing. Once on the palate, it delivers balsamic freshness and intensity in equal measures. Its famed, silky tannins reinforce a flavoursome, dignified passage that's both delicate and intense. A robust finish with a lengthy persistence and toasty nuances.

Awesome

I was not mad about the 2006 Prado Enea having been blown away by the fantastic 2001. The latest edition is back on form. Still a bit too young - it will stand another 20 years cellaring easily - nevertheless its a big concentrated poweful Rioja. Full of dark fruit with the classic strong bouquet of cigar box and even farm yard its a great wine with a superb long finish. Its a gem of a wine.

A fabulous wine in the traditional Rioja style

The wine is only made in very good years. Intense and balanced. Great length. Notes of ripe red fruit and other more complex flavours developed- tobacco, leather... . An excellent Rioja choice to drink now or keep for a few more years!

Rioja at its finest

This is probably one of the best Rioja wine I've had. I always make sure to have a good stock of Prado Enea in my cellar. Its simply wonderful with aromas of dark fruit like blackberry and dark cherries, oak and vanilla.
