jeb dunnuck logo 250"A bona fide fruit bomb, the 2012 Reserva Seleccion Familia checks in as 85% Tempranillo and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 20 months in equal part French and American oak. It’s a big, full-bodied, ripe effort that has loads of cassis, vanilla, cedarwood, and licorice aromas and flavors. Despite all its fruit, it stays balanced and lively on the palate, with good purity and a great finish. I’d drink it over the coming decade, but I suspect it will keep even longer."

vinous logo"(raised in new oak barrels, half French and half American) Deep ruby color. Sexy, oak-tinged raspberry, cassis and licorice aromas, along with a hint of mocha. Offers silky, sweet dark fruit and floral pastille flavors that show excellent depth and are energized by a late jolt of peppery spices. The spicy quality carries through a long, subtly tannic finish that leaves vanilla and blue fruit notes behind."

wa91"The 2012 Reserva Selección de la Familia is Tempranillo with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes it different from the majority of reds from Rioja. It matured 50/50 in French and American oak barrels for 20 months. It's slightly more international than the rest of the bottlings, the Cabernet adding some weight. There are notes of toasted sesame seeds and a touch from the French oak. It's clearly different, so it's a matter of preference which one you like best. 125,250 bottles produced. - Luis Gutierrez"
