Type: Red Wine
Country: Spain
Region: Rioja

"The 2008 Reserva has dark cherry, cassis and graphite on the nose. The palate has a sappy nose with blackberry, raspberry and a touch of soy towards the finish. The tannins are ripe and quite “thick,” lending the 2008 admirable substance considering the vintage."

2007 La Rioja Alta Vina Alberdi Crianza

"The wine has a translucent ruby color with an orange rind and an impressive bouquet of dried flowers, caramelized orange and cloves. The palate reveals a medium-bodied, elegant and balanced wine, keeping the power of the fruit and the subtleness of the aging, which is easy to drink and true to its origin. This wine represents a very good value for traditional Rioja."

2010 Muga Reserva

"In appearance it has shades of dark, very bright, cherry with slight purplish glints as the eye moves towards the rim of the glass. This is enough information for us to prepare ourselves to taste a wine with a certain amount of structure, excellent acidity and, as it is still a young 2010 wine, a promising future given that there is not the slightest trace of evolution. Before swirling the glass we can detect clearly-defined, very dominant red and black fruit (blackberry, redcurrant, wild plum). Then move the glass and fine leather aromas mingling with the fruit begin to appear. In the background, and only as a complement, select oaky spiciness comes through, still distinguishable but closely integrated into the wine. In order of predominance you can find black pepper, caramel, toast, vanilla, cloves. The most outstanding aspect of this vintage is the initial attack: juicy, meaty, dominant, full, mineral, structured, elegant. But in spite of the fact that this is all still in an incipient phase of integration. You can find light tannic appendices which will be rounded off in a short period of time. The experienced taster sees a great wine for laying down which will be able to be enjoyed during the whole journey towards maturity."

2010 Benjamin Romeo Predicador Red

"The 2010 Predicador is a blend of 93% Tempranillo and 7% Garnacha. The nose was suffering some bottle shock, but it certainly demonstrates intense floral aromas coupled with vibrant cassis fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine, structured tannins that, even at this premature juncture, are obvious. Taut, tense, and supremely well-focused, this should turn out to be a superb wine when it is released later this year."
