Izadi Reserva 2011 – Rioja, Spain

A 100% Tempranillo aged 14 months in American and French oak, the 2011 Reserva is an outstanding value showing beautiful black and red currant fruits, high-quality, unsmoked cigar tobacco, licorice and loamy soil undertones. Deep, medium to full-bodied, very pure, rich and concentrated, this is a gorgeous wine to drink over the next 3-4 years. Drink: 2015-2018. Score – 92. (Robert Parker Jr., robertparker.com, July 2015)
