Natalie's Score: 90/100

Mocha, dark chocolate and fleshy black plum on the nose. Balanced with nice oaking and concentrated black fruit flavours. Smooth though decanting for 1-2 hours will enhance this wine. Food pairings: blackened steaks, roast leg of lamb. Best Beef Wine

Bought after wine tasting in burligton on recommendation from teacher. Not part of class.
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2008 Beronia Reserva has intense aromas of cherry, dark chocolate, toasted oak, coconut and vanilla. It has light to medium body, integrated, has refined tannins (decant for 15-30 min) and the finish is long. It is overpowered by toasted vanilla/oak without the support of the fruit – hence a sipper, or can be drunk with dominating foods; drink now – 2016. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89 pts – recommended buy for lovers of oak. Tasted Jan/13.

Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Top notch. Dark plum, toast, leather, coffee, and a hint of mineral highlight this Rioja. Serve with lamb. Score could easily hit 90-91, but a little closed at the moment. Drink 2015-2022. 89 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Blend of Tempranillo with Graciano and Mazuelo (Carignan), aged in a combo of French and American oak. Brambly raspberry and blackberry, black cherry, vanilla, smoke, anise and black pepper paint a complex aromatic picture. Deep, dark and spicy on the palate with fleshy mouth-coating tannins and a nice, long finish. This really delivers for the price. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Dec. 2012
