Vintages Wine Panel: Why cellar it yourself when the wineries will do it for you? With Spanish wines, such as this Gran Reserva, that is exactly what you get. Made only in the very best years, these wines spend substantial time in both barrel and bottle before release. My note: Love those old leather saddles! Dried herbs, lovely tart cherries, earth and cigar box aromas. Full-bodied.

Rioja Gran Reserva food pairings: teriyaki kabobs, roast chicken, rabbit, chicken stir-fry, chorizo.

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This Gran Reserva belongs to one of the oldest bottles that I own, and hence I openned this one for a very special occasion. This wine is aged, light to medium bodied with very fragrant aromas of leather, aged cherry, violets and oak. Tannins are refined (decant for 15 to 30 min to allow all the fragrances to emerge) and the finish is long. I would not age this wine any longer as it is on decline - I openned one bottle in the summer and my notes (and my memory) indicate it to be more fragrant than this last one. Nonetheless, this is still a beautiful wine that is meant to be sipped. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 92 pts - would highly recommend if LCBO still sold it. Tasted May/10.
