“An unwooded expression of Grenache, the 2018 Old Vine Series Soldaat begins with a light floral nose with a dusty red-fruited core. Immediately on the palate, there’s a tight mineral grip, that almost robs the elegance and enjoyment away from the fruit. Fresh and firm, the mineral backbone drives through the mid-palate ending with a long and pure expression that is medium-bodied, with slightly chalky tannins, leaving me wanting just a bit less rigidity. This will mellow in time.” 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.
