Robert Parker 95
The 2007 Reserva has a lovely, rounded, sensual bouquet with kirsch, crushed strawberry, vanilla and a faint tang of marmalade. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded, sensual tannins. It is very well-balanced and pure. There are layers of new oak towards the finish, but here I find it singing from the same hymn book as the intense fruit. There is a sense of completeness and composure to this outstanding Reserva. Drink 2014-2025+

Deep ruby. Expansive scents of cherry liqueur, cassis and vanillin oak also show very good definition, with hints of woodsmoke and cola adding interest. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering juicy black and blue fruit flavors and a lively spine of acidity. Quite rich for the vintage, finishing with powerful thrust; smooth tannins come on late to add shape and structure.
