SKU #1147587 93 points Wine & Spirits

 Medium red. Seductively perfumed bouquet displays red and dark berries, incense and smoky Indian spices. Supple raspberry and cherry preserve flavors coat the palate and are enlivened by cinnamon, coriander seed and suave oak spices. A generous, seamless wine that manages to be deep and elegant at once, finishing sweet, sappy and long.  (12/2010)

K&L Notes

2001 is a great vintage in Rioja, and at Peciña their special "vendimia seleccionada" Reserva bottling shows this extra special dimension, both in vintage as well as the particular parcel selection, which creates a wine that not only rivals the gran reserva in elegance and detail, but arguably exceeds it. This is one for drinking but most definitely, one for the cellar as well; it has a long life ahead of it.! Pedro Peciña, former vineyard manager at La Rioja Alta, is at the helm of this family bodega, assisted by his son Pedro. Like all their wines, this is 100% estate fruit, sourced primarily from around San Vicente with a bit of fruit coming from Labastida as well. Tempranillo forms the majority of the blend, with Garnacha and Graciano rounding things out. Stylistically, these are classic Rioja wines, aged in used American oak, racked twice a year, and with all the requisite warm, earthy, spicy, elegant berry fruit one can expect in classic, old school Rioja. As an added bonus, these vines are farmed with an expert hand, minimally sprayed, and are beautifully situated; many are on north facing slopes which in this part of Rioja is an ideal orientation. The wines are fermernted using only native yeasts, and show a real classic sense of style both in terms of the flavors and texture. These are amongst our favorite Spanish wines.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Tempranillo

- A very important red grape varietal that's native to Northern Spain, grown across the north and central regions of the country. Low in acid and alcohol, with subtle strawberry, leather and tobacco notes, the grape responds well to oak aging and plays particularly well with others. Tempranillo is an important component, when combined with Garnacha, Mazuelo, Viura and Graciano, of Rioja, with the best examples coming for the cooler, higher-elevation regions like Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. It is also grown in significant quantities in the Ribera del Duero where it is called Tinto Fino and Penèdes where it is called Ull de Llebre o Ojo de Llebre. Tempranillo hasn't gained a particularly strong foothold outside of Spain, achieving some success under the name Tinto Roriz in Portugal. There it is used as a component of Port and in the table wines of the Ribera del Duero and the Dão.
Country:

Spain

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
