2012 Bodegas Roda Reserva Rioja

SKU #1307668 95 points James Suckling

 Very fresh, deep black fruit and licorice character. Rich and complex, but also very lively for its age. The refined tannins are beautifully integrated and drive the long, complex finish. Delicious now.  (7/2017)

K&L Notes

Located in the famed barrio de estaciones, Roda is the relative newcomer in this historic area of bodegas including Lopez de Heredia, La Rioja Alta and Muga. Their style tends to show more dark fruit flavors, with savory undertones and the grilled, toasty nuances of high quality French oak barrels. This is a wine of deep pitch and heft, but showing a fine balance between fruit flavors, textural weight and wood. This is Rioja for fans of Napa Cab and right bank Bordeaux. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish wine buyer)
