REMELLURI RESERVA 2011

DOCa Rioja

TASTING NOTE: Not far off from the phenomenal

2010, the 2011 Reserva was cropped from a much

warmer and riper vintage and it shows. This is the

cuvée that represents the house style and wants to

showcase the landscape of their estate, blending

grapes from their 108 hectares of vineyards located

at altitudes ranging from 550 to 800 meters altitude,

with vines aged between 35 and 80 years. It’s mostly

Tempranillo with some Garnacha and Graciano,

fermented with natural yeasts and aged in barrel for

some 16 months before being bottled. There are

aromas of damson plums and plenty of spices, quite

ripe and heady, a little cooked. The palate is lush and

round with abundant, dusty tannins. This is a powerful

vintage. Drink Date: 2016-2020. Score:

92

LUZÓN SELECCIÓN 12 MESES

CRIANZA 2013

DO Jumilla

TASTING NOTE: (fermented in stainless steel

tanks, followed by a year of aging in new French and

American oak barrels) Inky ruby. Dark berries,

incense, vanilla and sexy oak spices on the pungent,

expansive nose. Smooth and open-knit, offering

intense blackberry, cherry and mocha flavors

sharpened by a jolt of juicy acidity. Finishes on an

appealingly sweet note, with strong persistence and

a delicate dusting of tannins adding shape and

gentle grip. Drinking window: 2018-2023. Score:
