“With a richer, bolder expression, a testament to the challenging vintage, the 2016 Old Vine Series Mev Kirsten has a gorgeous nose, showing dusty pineapple, apple skin with white spice and baked earth. In the mouth, the wine expands to show greater depth with a delicate nuttiness and mineral tension, with the subtle growing flavor of arugula, moving slightly waxy across the mid-palate. Medium to full-bodied, the mouthfeel is well textured and has an amazing liveliness to the long complex and lingering finish.” The Wine Advocate, #245

Reviews

  • 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.
