WA 93 Pts. - WS 93 Pts. - IWC 92 Pts. - "Gorgeous 2010 Rioja Reserva from Vina Real, a wonderful representation of this bountiful vintage."
According to Wine Spectator - "Smoky and tarry notes give this rich red an austere character, but plum, licorice, soy and mineral notes promise an expressive future. Best from 2016 through 2030."
According to the Wine Advocate - "Going one step up in the quality ladder, the Viña Real 2010 Reserva plays with the advantage of being cropped from a quite balanced, fresh vintage, a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano from Rioja Alavesa fermented in stainless steel and matured in barrel for 22 months, during which time it was racked every four months. This wine has all the classical aromas of an old time Rioja, cherries, vanilla, some coconut, dill, leather, cured meat, incense, old furniture and cold bonfire. The palate is medium-bodied and very balanced with great acidity and fine tannins that make it easy to drink. Pop or keep. It has good freshness, and with time in the glass it develops beautiful aromas of orange peel that transmit very good freshness."
According to International Wine Cellar - "Deep ruby. Intensely perfumed aromas of black raspberry, cherry pit, vanilla and dried flowers. Juicy and precise on the palate, offering vibrant red and dark berry flavors and a hint of bitter chocolate. The floral quality comes back strong on the very long, smoke-tinged finish, which features a suave spicecake quality and even tannins." 13.5% ABV.
