2013 Bodegas Roda Rioja Reserva
A sumptuous Rioja Reserva from a noted producer. Made with grapes from old low yielding bush vines aimed to obtain fruit with a real richness and depth. This wine has been aged for 16 months in French oak and 20 months cellaring in bottle. The colour is an almost Burgundian red, but the nose has intense red cherry aromas with a subtle spiciness. On the palate it's smooth with freshness to the ripe cherry flavours, elegant spices, and fresh, ripe tannins. Complex, smooth and delicious.
