Jay Miller - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2003 Reserva Especial is 100% Tempranillo which was barrel fermented and aged 20 months in new French oak. Saturated purple-colored, it has a big nose of earth, vanilla spice, and blackberry. This is followed by a wine with ripe, sweet fruit, well integrated tannin, and good length. It lacks the complexity and potential of the 2001 Reserva (probably because 2001 is such a superior vintage) but it will offer fine drinking over the next decade."

Wine & Spirits:

"This is an ambitious wine with massive amounts of superripe fruit and a rich and exuberant texture. The tannins are soft, the acidity mild. With time in the glass, a mocha scent brings complexity and charm. Huge."

Product Description:

WINE:
"Colour: Clean and bright purple colour. Nose: Rich aromas, blend of black fruit and fine wood such as cedar and reminders of black liquorice. 100% Tino Fino." -Winery

WINERY:
"Since it was founded in 1993, Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro has been recognized for its high-quality wines, including Crianzas, Reservas and Gran Reservas. The estate, called la Planta, boasts 3,460 acres of land in Quintanilla de Onesimo, near Valladolid. It's breathtaking with its large number of deer and wild boar roaming free. Within this large natural space, which is also a hunting reserve, grow the 370 acres of vines dominated by the Tinto Fino or Tempranillo varietal and complemented by a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The facility is equipped with the latest technology, and its steel tanks can contain up to one million liters of wine. While stored in American and French oak barrels, the wines acquire a fine taste and aromas. In a few years, the Arzuaga Navarro family has been able to develop a large cellar of quality red wines thanks to the combination of tradition and technology." -Winery
