A full-bodied red wine with seductive aromas of black cherry pie with dark spices greet the nose. Mouth-watering and delicious on the palate. This wine is a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Garnacha, and matured in oak for 14 months. A long, smoky finish that makes you long for more. Highly recommended. Incredible price. Pair with pork tenderloin.

Reviews and Ratings

Michael rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Very Oaky hints of tobacco,vanilla and nice flavour, very good everyday wine worth a case
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 2004 Don Jacobo Reserva, composed of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Garnacha that was aged in oak for 14 months, has intense aromas of black currant, leather, mushroom, oak and vanilla. It is a medium bodied, integrated to aged wine; is bit acidic, has refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and a long finish. Food friendly, but better to sip this one; thought the fruit is drying out it should still be good until 2016-18. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 pts - recommended wine for aged wine lovers, excellent price!!!!!! Tasted Jan/13.
