Vina Bujanda Reserva Rioja 2016 91 WA
Viña Bujanda Reserva, made of 100% Tempranillo, comes from Rioja Alta and Alavesa areas. Grapes are grown in clay and harvested during the first week of October. The wine is then fermented in stainless steel tanks for 12 days and aged in oak for 20 months before it is ready to enjoy. The resulting wine shows intense complexity and great aging potential.
91 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The light and classical 2016 Reserva was produced with 100% Tempranillo from Rioja Alta. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel and matured in used French and American oak barrels for 24 months. It has notes of forest floor, sweet spices and decayed leaves, with a subtle palate at 13.5% alcohol and very good freshness (the pH is 3.46), polished and sleek, and a textbook dry finish of cedarwood, ash and cigar box.
91 Points James Suckling
Aromas of ripe dark fruit, baking spices, cedar wood and tar. Medium-to full-bodied with fine tannins. Attractive ripe and savory fruit flavors and notes of walnut to close. Drink or hold.
90 Points Wine Spectator
A lively red, offering a blend of both sweet and savory, with macerated black cherry and currant fruit accented by melted licorice and spiced orange. Reveals iron, loamy earth and cured tobacco notes, with supple, fine-grained tannins that firm the finish. Drink now
Deep purple with garnet highlights, this wine shows deep, spicy aromas of blueberries, leather, mocha, and cacao. On the palate, it shows round tannins, crisp acidity, and balanced body.
Pair this wine with juicy steaks, lamb chops, and beef kebabs.
