2001 Señorío de P. Peciña Gran Reserva Rioja

SKU #1086325 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Meanwhile, the 2001 Gran Reserva, aged in American oak for 48 months, has a lifted minty bouquet reminiscent of mature Right Bank Bordeaux! The palate is medium-bodied with rounded tannins. It is more youthful than the 2001Reserva, but without perhaps the same charm and personality. It has the substance to suggest it will age over the next decade. Drink now-2022.  (8/ 2012)

K&L Notes

This is a new find for us, and we couldn't be more thrilled about this producer. Founded in 1992 this is a relatively new producer, but fully old school in their approach. Their winemaker spent 20 years at one of our faves, La Rioja Alta, and his approach really shows here. Made from vines of approximately 40 years of age, this shows incredible density, but stays away from all that new oak and textural glycerin. As light as a feather and full of pipe tobacco, porcini mushrooms, and roasted anise seed, this is incredibly complex stuff. Perfect for any serious dinner or a quiet night with a book and a warm fire.

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 Penčdes 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.
