Wine Spectator Notes : Charry and earthy notes frame smoke, cigar box and modest plum flavors in this solid red. An austere style, but has grip and some depth. Drink now through 2018.

Robert Parker Notes : Released later than many others, the 2008 Roda I Reserva is a truly Atlantic, classical Rioja, with developed aromas of leather, blackberries and spicy and toasted sesame seed notes. The weaker vintages show the effect of the oak more evidently, but it is absorbed over time, much as I saw with the 1997–a somewhat similar vintage. This Atlantic has fresh notes than might feel a little herbal when young that turn into dry roses with a good decade in bottle. I see some earthy hints (peat), a combination of red and black fruit and that spiciness coming back in the palate. The wine is a bit stiff, as these kinds of vintages often take longer to come into their own. It has good depth, very fine tannins and is very fresh. Santolaya also uncorked a bottle of the 1994, a superb wine, aging in the direction of the classical Riojas and should still live a long life, and still feels young at age 21. This will surely live a long life in bottle and it’s one to have with food.

Tasting Notes : Colour: High to medium depth colouring. Deep cherry edging and red background. Nose: Red and balck fruit, between cherry and plum. The sweet spices in the line of clove and plum accompany the fruit. The wood is very well integrated. Fresh feeling that remembers a cold vintage through a nose full of details of the landscape and clear. Taste: Good volume, fresh and with many hues. It advances deep down with the pleasant of the fine and well ripe tannins. Long and with good acidity wine with full, elegant, spice and fresh aftertaste. It appreciated the cold year of slow ripening and Atlantic profile. Long wine of vertical character.
