jeb dunnuck logo 250"A small step up in price, the 2014 Reserva (85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano, and 5% Mazuelo) has a similar elegance and purity, with classic vanilla-laced notes of spice, garrigue, cedar, and both cherry and darker currant-like fruits. It’s balanced, has fine tannins, and is an outstanding wine. I like it today, but I suspect it’s capable of keeping for a decade."

vinous logo"(raised in a 50/50 combination of new and used French and American oak barrels for 18 months) Vivid ruby-red. An expansive, highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe black and blue fruits, cola, incense and toasty oak, with a sexy floral overtone. Silky and broad on the palate, offering concentrated black raspberry, cherry-vanilla and coconut flavors that become spicier with aeration. In an emphatically fruity style, showing solid closing thrust, strong persistence and gently gripping tannins. - Josh Raynolds"

vinous logo"(raised for 18 months in a 50/50 combination of French and American oak barrels, new and used) Bright ruby-red.

2010 Burgo Viejo Rioja Reserva - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Saturated ruby. The nose displays an array of ripe dark fruit and floral scents, with a potent vanilla overtone. Fleshy and open-knit for the vintage, offering powerful blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors that pick up a spicy flourish with aeration. The vanilla and cherry notes repeat emphatically on a very long, gently tannic, spicy finish. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks this wine spent a year in American oak barrels.- Josh Raynolds"
