Full ruby-red. Highly complex aromas of currant, espresso, celery, exotic coconut and earthy, dusty spices (coriander seed, cumin). Supple and flavorful, with notes of currant, meat, minerals, licorice and fresh herbs. This estate’s wine often reminds me of Cheval Blanc in the early going, and this release is no exception. But here the 2001 vintage has brought a bit more flesh than usual. Persistent, lifted finish. Very interesting juice-and, as always, not your typical Ribera del Duero wine.

A blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Merlot, the 2001 Reserva enjoyed malolactic in barrel and aging in French oak (much of it new) for 24 months prior to bottling. A complex nose of dried herbs, blueberries, black currants, licorice, and espresso is followed by a ripe, full-bodied, opulent, pure, elegant as well as nuanced wine. It should drink well for 7–8 years.
