"The 2010 Reserva contains 20% Cabernet Sauvignon from selected plots from their slope vineyards planted 25 years ago on chalk-rich soils that fermented with indigenous yeasts. 2010 was a near-perfect growing season, producing wines that are both powerful and fresh and that should have a long life in bottle. The nose is fragrant and elegant, mixing notes of red and black fruit with a sense of extreme harmony. Very showy. As much as it’s elegant it also feels powerful and serious, quite Ribera, with good typicity. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with polished tannins, and is supple and tasty and with great acidity and length. A balanced, elegant vintage, not showy or voluptuous, but more serious and developing complexity. 14,330 bottles were produced. Peter Sisseck likes to make a comparison between 1995 and 1996 and 2009 and 2010, 2010 being similar to 1996. I see a bright future for this 2010. A fine and elegant Ribera. Bravo! At this quality level this represents very good value."

"This big red has both polish and density, with muscular, well-integrated tannins supporting the rich texture. The flavors are more harmonious than expressive, with plum, licorice, tar, mineral and coffee notes. Impressive structure. Best from 2018 through 2030."
