Roda Reserva Rioja DOC is a superb Reserva Rioja from a cutting edge Bodega. Bodegas Roda was established in the 1980s when Mario Rotllant and his wife, Carmen Daurella, undertook an exhaustive analysis of many of the best vineyard sites in La Rioja Alta, They picked 17 of the very best vineyard sites with vines aged between 30 and 90 years old and signed long term contracts with the growers. Today Bodegas Roda’s vineyards consist of 28 blocks of old Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano vines in the best locations of La Rioja Alta.
The 2005 Reserva comes from an outstanding vintage and displays a classy perfume of spice box, cedar, leather, violets, and assorted black fruits. Dense, layered, and plush on the palate, in the glass it is intense, impeccably balanced, and lengthy. Just reaching its drinking window now and will continue to develop exquisitely for many years to come.
