Yet another good reason to cellar a wine. This 2001 Reserva is hitting the high notes. Always a Tempranillo fan, this one has the rich fruit, length and tannins that take me for a great ride. Not very complex, it is medium weight and still showing primary fruit, even at 10 years of age. Hopefully it will take on a second life and add some interesting depth and secondary flavors. Whatever direction it takes, it sure is smooth- worthy of seeking out. 5 stars and perhaps a 90 point rating?
Besides, what an awesome label!
