“Deep red with ruby tones. Deeper, more important nose hints at medicinal dark cherry and spices. A big step up in concentration over the basic Santenots, conveying an almost chocolatey ripeness and terrific density to its kirsch, spice and savory mineral flavors. This fruit was picked four days later than the younger Santenots vines and the wine delivers much more complexity and grip. Shows a relaxed quality that belies the low yield. Excellent balance and potential here.” Stephen Tanzer

  • 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.
