(From 2005 Vintage) This wine is black cherry in color with a purple rim and deep aromas of black fruit, plum, mineral and cocoa. Subtle tannins in a dense body are complemented by black prune and chocolate flavors that culminate in a long, elegant finish with balanced acidity.
Robert Parker(From 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"
