Bottle size: 750 ml
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.
Tempranillo food pairings: blackened steaks, roast leg of lamb.

|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.

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|
