(1998 Vintage) Roda II, like Roda I, spends 24 months in French oak barricas and one year in bottle prior to release. A top wine, resulting from a selection of barrels which appear friendlier and more approachable in youth than those destined for Roda I. 75% Tempranillo, 25% Garnacha (old vines), also aged two years in French oak.

Robert Parker(1998 Vintage) "Made from 100% Tempranillo from 60-year ld vines, the 1998 Roda I reserva spends more time in French Oak, and is bottled unfiltered. A beautiful nose of black cherries, cassis, smoke, and toast is followed by a pure, medium-bodied offering possessing excellent purity, superb texture, and a long, concentrated, seamless finish. It... should drink well for over a decade"
