Critical Acclaim

93
Wine Enthusiast
Imperial Reserva is a personal favorite, and from a vintage plagued by rain this is a swinging success. Rich aromas of maple are prominent, with solid berry fruit as the canvas. Punchy acidity seems raw at first, but it's the proper carrying vessel for tangy, spicy dried-fruit flavors that settle on cranberry and plum. Drink through 2032.

Wine Spectator
This red is aromatic, with floral and spice notes that follow through on the round, tender palate, mingling with berry, cherry and vanilla flavors. Supple, structured more by sweet-tart acidity than the light tannins. Distinctive and alluring. Drink now through 2024.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Imperial Reserva is 85% Tempranillo with 5% each of Graciano, Mazuelo and Garnacha fermented in stainless steel vats and matured in oak barrels for two years. It's the more balsamic and aromatic of all the Reservas, with intoxicating aromas of cigar box, ash, incense, old furniture, faint smoke and spices. There is good ripeness, without excess. I think this is a real triumph over the challenging conditions of the year, with harmony and balance, good acidity and very fine tannins. It's not a super vintage, but a noteworthy one, with all that is needed to develop in bottle. 150,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2017.

Discover Rioja Wines

Rioja is a Spanish wine area where grapes are produced in the autonomous community of La Rioja and Navarre, as well as the Basque province of Lava. Rioja is split into three zones: Alta Rioja, Oriental Rioja, and Alavesa Rioja. Many wines have historically combined grape varieties from all three areas, but single-zone wines are becoming more popular.

Rioja is made from a variety of grapes, with Tempranillo being the most prominent. Garnacha is often used to give fruitiness to the mix; Mazuelo (sometimes called as Cariena) and Graciano may also be used.

Rioja wine, like Cabernet Sauvignon, is renowned for its structure and tannins, but it also has a fruity flavor. This makes it ideal for wine lovers who like Cabernet but also want to taste the strong cherry flavor found in Pinot Noir wines.

Rioja is as age-worthy as Bordeaux and Burgundy wines, although it is less well-known than its more well-known counterparts. This means that a fantastic bottle of age-worthy Rioja can be had for a fraction of the price of a comparable bottle of Bordeaux or Burgundy. Rioja wine, like many other Old World wines, gets its name from the Rioja area where it is produced.
