“Beginning impeccably balanced and generous on the nose, the 2018 Series C is wrapped in elegant baking spices from the almost 70% new French oak. A blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 14% Malbec and 11% Cabernet Franc, the wine bursts with finesse, precision, elegance and juicy dark fruit. Full-bodied, the Series C boasts juicy blackberry essence, notes of black raspberry cobbler, toasted pie crust and cedar cigar box in the mouth, with pure balance, fine-grained tannins, succulent acidity and a mineral tension across the mid-palate. It ends with a long, winding finish that evolves with persistence. This vintage marks another successful bottling. The only downside is that only 36 barrels were made. This is highly collectible stuff!” The Wine Advocate, #253

  • 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.
