Wine Profile

Tasting Notes "Dusty rose and violet nose followed by a rich, supple palate - super delicate. Only Rioja can do this, and with American oak. The oak adds a grainy texture and complexity to the fruit. The finish is long, with a hint of spice." - Sarah Jane Evans, MW
Awards 95 POINTS DECANTER - 2010 VINTAGE!
Vineyard Notes A young business, founded in 1985, but one that was successful right from the start. Baron de Ley is based in an old fortified monastery. This Reserva has been the cornerstone of the winery since the beginning, under the guidance of chief winemaker Gonzalo Rodriguez. It reflects the warmth of the Rioja Baja, and vines grown on alluvial soils over clay, The ripe fruit is matched by 20 months in American oak. Baron de Ley set out to make Riojas in a modern style, and has continued to experiment with blends, and lesser known varieties such as Maturana Tinta.
Food Pairing Notes The ultimate partner for grilled peppered steak!
