Ruby red color with garnet border. The nose is a blend of strawberry, sweet spices and sandalwood. Very complex and fine, the wine surprises with its delicacy and personality. Denitely a racy wine, fresh, whose tannic qualities rarely meet.

96 Pts-All whole-cluster fruit from a single parcel of old Grenache, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape les Clavelles boasts fascinating notes of cedar, due to its élevage in small oak, ripe cherries and strawberries, resinous herbs and dried spices. For a full-bodied wine, it's remarkably light on its feet and elegant, framed by silky tannins and a lingering, intense finish redolent of strawberries, star anise and allspice. This bottling has next to no track record (the first vintage was 2015), so it remains to be seen how long and well it will age, but I feel safe in suggesting at least a decade of drinkability.

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

  • Soham Phillips

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
