Bodegas Izadi Rioja Reserva 2018
Bodegas Izadi Rioja Reserva is a brilliant ruby color. Rich aromatic intensity with a nice balance of red fruit, liquorice and spices and smoked hints in the background. Elegant and round in the palate with a long finish that brings back floral and fruity memories.

Dark berries, dark cherries, chocolate, cedar, dried herbs and spice box. Full-bodied with fine tannins. Balanced and fleshy with creamy and fruity character on the mid-palate and a flavorful finish with excellent length. Vibrant at the end. 100% tempranillo. Drink or hold.
Limpid ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented cherry and raspberry aromas are complemented by suggestions of coconut, cola and pipe tobacco, and a floral nuance emerges slowly. Sweet and velvety in texture, offering palate-coating red and dark berry, rose pastille, coconut and vanilla flavors braced by a core of juicy acidity. Shows solid, spicy thrust on a long, smooth finish that's shaped by subtle, rounded tannins. 73% American and 27% French oak barrels, 20% of them new.
