Viña-Real Reserva 2005 1.5L


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Deep Ruby and cherry red, with the lightest hint of a terracotta edge. Good intensity on the nose, with ripe autumn fruits, warm spices and elegant toasty oak. The palate is rich, warming and velvet, with good acidity and noble tannin. The vanilla from the oak is beautifully married with the raspberry fruit of the Tempranillo producing a fine, rich, complex palate and length of finish. The wine is balanced now, but has potential to improve.

Wine SpectatorPlum, smoke and herbal flavors are framed by mineral and licorice notes in this firm, maturing red. This is medium-bodied, with good acidity that keeps this lively, despite its austere character. Drink now through 2014. 14,000 cases made.
