Gran Reserva

Ramon Bilbao Gran Reserva Tempranillo 2004

D.O.C.A., Rioja, Spain

Caryl scored this wine: 91/100

Lots of legs. Strong spicy rioja with lots of dark berry and pepper flavours. The kind of wine I would recommend for a rich red meat dinner. However, it's sophisticated enough to enjoy on it's own. It's a good choice any day of the week. Cheers

Love the complex flavours in this wine. And has a very smooth mouth feel. Not a coincidence it's called Chocolate Block as the flavours just go so well with dark chocolate and berries. Delish!

Love this wine! Easy drinking wine. Goes great with mild or brie type cheeses.

Fruity all the way through. A little too sweet for meals. But would be a perfect sangria wine. Fun bottle design!

Bitter pepper on the tongue, nice sharp taste. Good wine for the value. Enjoy with pizza!
