2001 Bodeags Valsacro Dioro Selección Rioja

SKU #1005307 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The prodigious 2001 Dioro Seleccion is a 200-case cuvee packaged in a heavy bottle. Aged completely in French oak, this loaded 2001 boasts a deep purple color as well as a sweet perfume of lead pencil shavings, white chocolate, tobacco leaves, creme de cassis, cherries, cola, and smoky new oak. Full-bodied and ripe, with superb purity and a multilayered texture, this exceptional red should hit its peak in 2-4 years, and last for 15+. (RP)  (4/2004)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

 This is a very new wine, but one worth getting if you like the modern style Spanish red. Made from 70-year old Tempranillo as well as some Mazuelo, Graciano and Garnacha, you’ll be digging into a massively roasted, well-oaked bruiser. Caramel, mocha and chocolate mix with full berry fruit to yield a wine of concentration and body. Thick and manly; mature and ready by 2008.  (9/2004)

K&L Notes

The 2001 vintage was a blockbuster for the Rioja area and this wine shows off all of that great style and depth. Made from a single vineyard, the Dioro is a great example of the "New World style" of Rioja. It's big and flashy and fruit-driven. From the ripe currant and blackberry fruit to the oak and spice aromas, it's a great Spanish red to try for all of you dyed-in-the-wool California wine lovers!
