An elegant and smooth Reserva with pleasant tannins.
What does this wine taste like?
A ruby red colour, the wine is clean and bright in appearance. The nose exudes an aroma brimming with intensity, of very ripe red fruit on a balsamic background. The palate is smooth, fresh and sinewy, with well-integrated and polished tannins, exhibiting touches of liquorice on the aftertaste.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker
It is better the "crianza" 2013
Good wine but rather normal. Not really an excellent "reserva". It is definitely much better the "crianza" of 2013 of the same "bodega"
Best at the price
Just love this rich velvet - perfect taste with deep fruit with a delicious aftertaste.
Nos encanta. Año tras año, cosecha tras cosecha, nunca defrauda, un valor seguro. Con cuerpo y buen equilibrio, final suave. Y con vinissimus, que gozada, servicio perfecto, nunca falla y vinos en perfecto estado. Felicidades a todo el equipo.
Full-bodied with diverse notes
I love this red wine. It is one of my favourite red wines from Spain -- a perfect balance between fruit, tannin, and character.
