Lesmos is back, and now in magnums, the ideal size for parties and for extended aging in your cellar! Composed of the same grapes in the same percentages as the Crianza, the Reserva is a barrel selection of wines that Angel feels can undergo longer aging in barrel and then in bottle. Aged a total of 27 months in barrels, then into concrete for more than a year, the Reserva also sees bottle aging until Angel deems it ready for release. This wine ramps up the intensity of the Crianza, with more pungent fruit as well as a real spicy and wild quality. In a vintage as good as 2010, this wine is likely to improve for quite a long time. As with many of the best Riojas, though, this wine is quite delicious right now if you want to drink some bottles while you wait for other bottles in your cellar to mature.

There is plenty of fruit, good acidity, soft tannin structure, lots of minerality and a lengthy finish. The combination of blue/dark fruit and the black cherry comes from the Tempranillo. I also find some tar and roses on the lengthy finish. ROCKIN' 2010!
