TASTING NOTES

The blend of the 2012 Rioja Reserva is significantly different from previous vintages, with more Graciano and Garnacha. The palate has one extra point in depth, with very fine tannins and especially good freshness that gives it a sense of great harmony.

Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate
92/100

Terrific aromas of currants, berries, cinnamon and perfume. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a dense palate. Superb length and refinement. Compact. Super length. Superb quality considering the price. More delicate and refined than the 2010. Precise.
