Bodegas Roda 1 2016
Tempranillo. Smooth, well-balanced, truly an iron fist in a velvet glove. Spicy and balsamic nuances are extremely subtle, tannins are silky and acidity is phenomenal. This Reserva from La Rioja has a fruit of the purest quality, and the wine exudes a real sense of terroir. Long finish with remembrances of underbrush, tree bark, blueberries, and forest floor.
