One of Spanish best wines. A modern accessible Rioja with 16 months of barrel aging. Ready to drink now but can also be kept in the cellar for another 15 years. A nose of red fruit, coffee, roasted nuts. Smooth on the palate, earthy, ripe red fruit, a hint of pepper, cocoa and nice ripe tannins. Beautiful aftertaste. The Tempranillo grapes for the Roda I (1) Reserva come from head-pruned Tempranillo vines older than 30 years around the capital of the Rioja - Haro, which ferment in large oak barrels with their own yeasts and are transferred to French oak barrels for the malolactic fermentation, where the wine ages for 16 months. It is a thoroughly modern Rioja. Give it one or 5-6 years to develop some more of than incipient complexity and enjoy it for the next 10-15 years. Very elegant and refined - Best to decant over the next 5 years.
