WA 92 Pts - According to the Wine Advocate - "Bodegas Izadi’s owner, the Anton family, also owns the well-known Finca Villacreces in Ribera del Duero. Izadi is a relatively large estate with more than 375 acres in Rioja Alavesa. About 40% of the vineyards are over 70 years of age, which is quite impressive. The 2010 Reserva is another remarkable bargain from European Cellars. Made from 100% Tempranillo aged 14 months in American and French oak, it boasts a dense purple color as well as a big, sweet perfume of cassis, vanillin, graphite and forest floor. Full-bodied and ripe with terrific texture, purity and palate presence, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for 5-10 years, possibly longer." 14% ABV.
