Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 92/100
Mature with tanned leather and Old World finesse. Gorgeous dry fruit and herbs, earth, dust and time gone by aromas. Finishes with longing and regret (for another glass). Pair with lamb.
Tempranillo food pairings: wild boar roast, grilled venison steak, roast pheasant.
Glorious Game Wine

Reviews and Ratings
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Aged at least 24 mos in new oak and further 3 yrs in bottle, made from selected grapes from best Tempranillo vineyards. Dark garnet with ripe cherry, vanilla and leather aromas, leading to a rich palate showing ripe cherry, integrated spice, leather and tobacco. Smooth, elegant and satiny with a lingering rich finish. Enjoy with roast lamb for a beautiful experience.

|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Toasted cherry, leather, smoke and vanilla on the nose and palate - so elegant and beautifully crafted. The mouthfeel is smooth and silky with a rich cherry finish. Perfect with with a rosemary crusted rack of lamb.
|Produced by Bodegas Faustino Martinez, this full-bodied and mature Riojan red Gran Reserva has so much to offer with its well-integrated ripe cherry, integrated spice, leather and tobacco flavours. Faustino I Gran Reserva (2004) is a red wine blend of mostly Tempranillo with 9% Graciano 9% and 5% Mazuelo (Cariñena), aged for 26 months in oak barrels. Pair with a good book by a roaring fire. - Community Wine Reviews|
