Tasting Note: The Gran Reserva spends 39 months in French oak and one American. The 2005 Gran Reserva has a deep inky purple/black hue. The nose is very opulent and pure with macerated black cherries, kirsch with a touch of peppermint. The palate is full-bodied and very pure with dense, saturated dark cherry, wild strawberry, a dash of white pepper and dark chocolate. The oak is firmly in the driving seat on the silky smooth finish with tantalizing blood orange and spice on the aftertaste. Limited to 2,400 bottles due to be released in 2013, this is certainly an impressive Rioja worthy of long-term maturation. Drink 2018-2030+ Score - 94. (Neal Martin, robertparker.com, Aug. 2012)
