2010 Lealtanza

Gran Reserva Rioja, Spain



Lurid ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe cherry, smoked meat, vanilla and floral pastilles, and a succulent herb nuance emerges as the wine opens up. Juicy and seamless in texture, offering juicy cherry cola, candied rose and mocha flavors that are firmed by a spine of tangy acidity. Concentrated but lively as well, showing excellent delineation and spicy cut on the lingering, gently tannic finish. (JR)   (2/2019) -- Rated 92 pointsby  Vinous

  Some earthy and meaty aromas here with some herbs across dark chocolate and dark berries. The palate is smoothly delivered on layers of fine, even-paced tannins. Nice length here.   (2/2018) -- Rated 91 points by James Suckling

  Soft, ripe aromas of cassis, raisin and buttery oak are easygoing and not too demanding. An elastic feel is derived from rubbery tannins, while this tastes of saucy plum and berry fruits as well as savory oak. The finish on this gran reserva delivers more of the same flavors, with notes of herbs and spice. Drink through 2025. (MS)   (4/2019) -- Rated 91 points by Wine Enthusiast

  Woody spice, malt and roast plums on the nose with a very light undertow of animal/gaminess. Refined, mellow tannins melting into warm-spiced fig and damson fruit. There's a really elegant tang and lift through the core bringing freshness and length to the finish. A sense of sap rising through the veins of this wine but the overarching impression is one of beautiful refinement.    (11/2018) -- Rated 17/20 points by Jancis Robinson
