Natalie's Score: 92/100
Mocha and espresso on the nose of this robust Spanish red wine from oak aging. Chiseled structure and terrific balance, with black fruit, smoke and dried herb aromas. The Tempranillo grapes from the classic wine region of Rioja. Pair with grilled lamb.
Food pairings: grilled chicken, veal roast, casseroles.

Reviews and Ratings
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Medium ruby coloured with garnet reflections. Aromas are pronounced with blackberries, strawberries, ripe raspberry, dark chocolate, vanilla and a touch of earthiness. Flavours are abundantly full with black currant, dark plums, cocoa, dried bay leaves and prunes. Medium plus acidity, body, tannins and finish length. Incredibly well balanced. Pair with smoked paprika pork ribs and grilled red stuffed peppers.

|Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This sophisticated full bodied wine has aromas of black plums, tart cherries, red licorice, violet, earthy notes of autumn leaves and cedar, as well a touch of pepper. On the palate, there are moderate tannins that are well balanced by the right level of acidity. In terms of flavours, there are dark berries, some floral notes and a touch of cocoa and pepper.
This wine would pair well with a roast or with stew.
Tasted November 2017
|From Bodegas Altanza, Club Lealtanza Reserva (2009) is a 100% Tempranillo from the Rioja wine region. The wine was made in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 28 degrees Celsius. This wine is aged for 18 months in Allier French oak barrels and 24 months bottle prior to its release. Great balance this dry, inky ruby red wine with a pronounced blackberry and mocha nose. Lots of ripe black fruit and smoky flavours on the palate. Tannins are smooth. Pair with grilled meats. Drink now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews|
