Critical Acclaim

Tim Atkin
The 2011 Gran Reserva was never going to scale the same heights as the 2010 (it’s a vintage thing), but it comes very close. Showing little sign of the heat of the growing season, this combines Tempranillo with Garnacha and Graciano to stylish effect. The oak just needs time to melt into the wine. 2019-25. Alcohol: 14%

Wine Enthusiast
Smooth, steady aromas of dark fruits, turned earth and oak grain are exactly what you want from a high-quality Rioja Gran Reserva. On the palate, this is pure and tight, with clarity and structure. Flavors of dried plum, cherry, raspberry, spice and cocoa are expansive and finish with elegance. Drink through 2040. Vineyard Brands.

Wine Spectator
This red is lively and expressive, with cherry, tobacco, licorice, vanilla and allspice flavors mingling on a round, gentle texture that practically floats through the spicy, floral finish. Balanced and graceful. Drink now through 2025.

James Suckling
This has a rich array of ripe dark plums, as well as spiced-earth and meaty nuances. The palate is round and full, reflecting the warm vintage. Drink or hold.

Discover Blended Red Wine Wines

In the United States, a red mix is any American wine that isn't produced from a single grape type. It's an odd classification since many, if not all, red wines are and have always been mixes. A grand cru Bordeaux produced entirely of Cabernet, as well as Chiantis made entirely of Sangiovese, are the exception rather than the norm. In addition, California law only requires a wine's label to contain 75% of the grape type.

Winemakers combine grapes because it enables them to create a wine in a sense. A splash of Merlot may help soften Cabernet's tannins, while a dash of Syrah can give watery, inexpensive Pinot some punch. Blending is common in several regions: Rioja, for example, has traditionally blended Tempranillo, Graciano, and Garnacha. Many modern, inexpensive red blends, on the other hand, are simply created for mass appeal¬ólots of superripe, black fruit and no acidity¬óusing whatever varietals would suffice.
