Really great for $50 retail. Barely hitting it's mature stride. American oak is in check here. Called it as 06 Rioja

11 years old and still in its youth. All the hallmarks of a classic Gran Reserva, with a long life ahead. Intense notes of dried fruits and herbs on the nose (blackberry, fig; oregano, thyme), followed by an inevitably savoury taste. Dark fruits emerge to provide some sweetness to the wine, allowing a long, dry finish with well-reformed tannins and a touch of vanilla. Best Rioja I've had recently.

Clove, tobacco, dried flowers, well integrated tannins, full of acidity. This was beyond delicious.

Celebratory wine... with eager anticipation to visit the winery in a few weeks. Toasty oak notes, vanilla bean, cherry flambé, pipe tobacco, white pepper, and anise. Supple on the palate, with fresh black cherry fruit and pops of leather and cedar. Finish persists and tannins are well integrated. Drink now or over the next 5 years. 30 minute decant on this one.

At a loss for words...this was just so freaking delicious. Dark cherry, leather, firm structure, and long finish. Hint of mint. Probably the best Rioja I’ve ever had.

Had this 1 year ago, still great! The pillars on which the 5 founding families erected a winery in 1890 built a way of living, producing wines of the highest quality, still evolving. Not released until 2015, bright Ruby, complex fruit aromas, spice & oak. 90% Tempranillo from 3 villages & 10% Graciano from 2 villages. Cherry & blackberry flavors, with sweet currant focus, espresso & spicy notes on mouthwatering tannins. Wow! Lingering finish. Will get better over next 15 years. Just released ‘07, will try!
