"The 2010 Finca Iscorta De Peciña Gran Reserva is their usual blend of Tempranillo with 3% Garnacha and 2% Graciano, sourced from 50-year-old vines from their Finca Iscorta vineyard in the Sonsierra zone; therefore, it is a single-vineyard bottling. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in well-seasoned American oak barrels for 48 months with manual and gravity rackings every six months. This feels very harmonious, combining some primary notes with more-developed tertiary aromas. The palate also reveals a rare mix of power and elegance that only the very best vintages are capable of. It has polished tannins, good volume, freshness and length. Drink or hold, there should be no rush. 18,000 bottles were filled in March 2015."

"(raised in neutral American oak barrels for four years) Vivid ruby-red. A highly perfumed, expansive bouquet displays an array of ripe red fruits, exotic spices and candied flowers, along with subtle coconut and pipe tobacco accents. Juicy, seamless and appealingly sweet, offering intense, smoke-tinged raspberry preserve, cherry-vanilla and spice cake flavors and mocha and licorice nuances that build as the wine opens up. Finishes supple, sweet and very long, with slow-building tannins that fold smoothly into the clinging fruit."
"A Gran Reserva wine is a Great Work, so we need to start with a base wine that meets special conditions in terms of structure, colour, tannins and aromas. This wine is therefore made with grapes from our oldest vines, from which we obtain very small, highly-concentrated berries, with very low yields and extraordinary quality.
Colour: ruby-cherry red, with good depth and amber-orange rim bright, clean.
Aromas: fine, intense nose with ripe fruit, toffee and chocolate, reduction with a classic bouquet of leather and tobacco. Spicy.
Palate: Rounded tannins, balanced, long, velvety, smooth." - Winery
