Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer HIDALGO
NEW in Vintages, this exceptionally priced 2015 Reserva Tempranillo offers a terrific, surprisingly complex, classic Rioja flavours. Fairly deep intense red colour, the nose has that classic, sandalwood-tinged, attractive, ripe, plummy-cherry-cassis fruit with some hints of tobacco leaf, minerally warm red brick along with a touch of American oak. It follows up perfectly - dry, medium to medium-full bodied, well structured, intense, harmonious, ripe, plum-cherry-cassis flavours with a a lingering, bright, complex, gently cedary finish. A remarkable value with great mouthfeel for just $19.95 - load up and enjoy over the next two years. It has 13.5% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number L1047 on the back label. CSPC 18933

A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: A fine mix of dried red fruit, baking spice, tobacco and olive aromas ranks as classic Rioja. A dry, fairly full palate reflects the quality of the 2015 vintage, while flavors of spiced plum, cassis and tobacco avoid any tricks. A meaty, chewy palate confirms that this was made from excellent raw materials. Drink through 2023. Score - 92 (Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast, May 1, 2019) Price $ 19.95
