2001 Heras Cordon Reserva
"The 2001 Reserva, made from a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano, was aged 15 months in new oak, 80% French and 20% American. Dark ruby in color, it offers hints of lead pencil, spice box, cherries, and black currants in its complex bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, this modern-styled Rioja has plenty of ripe, tasty red and black fruits, considerable elegance, and a long, pure finish. Drink it over the next 6-8 years."
