The 2007 Finca La Emperatriz Reserva comes from 60-year-old bush vines. It has a melted, sensual nose of macerated red cherries, a hint of sloes and eau-de-vie. There is just the right amount of volatility to lend it lift without diminishing the freshness. The palate is rounded and sumptuous in the mouth with cranberry, wild strawberry and red currant mingling with Asian spices and tobacco. The finish is very composed, with impressive weight and length, but does not outstay its welcome. This is a very fine Reserva that should age well over the next decade. Drink now-2022.

"[...] It has an unashamedly opulent bouquet of primal, ripe, boysenberry, mulberry, dark chocolate and crushed violets that blossom with aeration. The palate is full-bodied with crisp acidity cutting through the pure blackberry and cassis fruit. It has wonderful focus and intensity, though the finish demonstrates convincing composure. This is an outstanding Gran Reserva whose silky texture will instantly win you over. Drink 2013-2030+. [...]" Wine Advocate (95)
"The 2008 Reserva has dark cherry, cassis and graphite on the nose. The palate has a sappy nose with blackberry, raspberry and a touch of soy towards the finish. The tannins are ripe and quite “thick,” lending the 2008 admirable substance considering the vintage. Drink 2015-2030." Wine Advocate (91 Points)
80% tempranillo and 10% garnacha, with bits of mazuelo and graciano): Lurid red. Intense red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by cracked pepper and licorice. Taut and refreshingly bitter, with energetic cherry and redcurrant flavors and a hint of rhubarb. Tight and focused on the spicy finish. Pretty serious for the money.Stephen Tanzer International Wine Cellar

Fruity red, with a spicy/toasted edge. Well balanced with a persistence of tempranillo and a touch of Graciano.
"Glass-staining ruby. Assertive aromas of red berries, rose and spicecake, with a hint of smoke. Silky and sweet, with fresh raspberry and floral flavors and tangy back-end lift. In an elegant, precise style, with very good finishing clarity and length. This is drinking very well right now. " International Wine Cellar (90)
