Spain
Tempranillo
Red Wine

Wine Spectator Notes : A supple texture carries dark flavors of black cherry, smoke and loam in this fresh red. Though light, the tannins turn firm on the finish. Drink now through 2014.

Robert Parker Notes : The Tempranillo grapes for the 2007 Roda I Reserva are sourced from head-pruned Tempranillo vines over 30 years old, mostly around Haro, that ferment in big oak vats with their own yeasts and are transferred to French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, where the wine matures for 16 months. 2007 was a cold vintage with mildew problems during the growing season and a late harvest which resulted in a true Atlantic vintage with more stuffing than 2008. Here the fruit is darker, black cherries and black plums complemented by notes of very fine spices, with good depth and showing signs of some developed complexity. The medium-bodied palate reveals a pure, delineated, clean wine with fine acidity. It finishes long, with some dusty tannins. It develops a deep Rioja character as the wine opens up in the glass. Give it one or two years to develop some more of than incipient complexity and enjoy over the next decade. Very elegant and fine; it should age with style. Drink 2015-2027.

Tasting Notes : Colour: Intense, deep, black cherry red background with bright red cherry red hues in the rim. Nose: Great balance between the oak and the fruit, in particular black plums, with some dark chocolate and sweet spices on a background of stark minerality showing through, providing a very elegant and complex bouquet. Taste: This Spanish Rioja is medium bodied but shows great length. Mouth filling without weighing you down. The ripe black plum fruit shines together with some cocoa and dark chocolate blending perfectly with the sweet tannins from the oak. A very elegant, pleasing wine to the palate, less powerful than the 2005 release, but beautifully balanced, silky smooth, arousing an inviting moreish feeling that makes it a great food companion even at this early stage, thanks to its well rounded tannins and its freshness, providing a long, satisfying finish.
