The 2010 La Antigua Clásico Rioja Reserva is another excellent wine from this superb bodegas, offering up a deep and very elegant bouquet of raspberries, cherries, Rioja spice tones, a bit of meatiness, lovely, stony soil tones, cloves and a hint of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and fairly broad-shouldered in style (this is predominantly Garnacha, with Tempranillo playing a supporting role in the cépages), with a fine core of fruit, ripe, suave tannins and excellent length and grip on the complex and bouncy finish. This wine is drinking quite well at age nine, but will be even better with another four or five years of bottle age. Fine juice. 92+
Quite a traditional Rioja with red-fruit and milk-chocolate notes, medium-body, moderate tannins and a supple finish. Good harmony and length. Drink now or hold.
(60% French and 40% American oak barrels) Deep red. Lively smoke- and spice-accented cherry and red berry aromas are complemented by floral oil, game and pipe tobacco flourishes. Seamless and focused on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter with air. Shows very good energy and suave floral character on a long, fruit-driven finish that's given shape by well-integrated tannins. (JR)
