Reviews of purchase "Roda" Reserva, Rioja DOC, 2015
Wine of intense and vivid red.
Taste wine middle of the body, but with a large volume, silk texture, fine-grained tannins, caressing sweet notes of ripe cherry and spicy nuances. The finish is long, elegant, sophisticated, fresh, fruity.
The aroma of wine is very intense, very elegant and refined, with a perfect balance between the sensual notes of fresh red cherries and light shades of wood, spices and undergrowth. After some time in the glass appear enveloping fruity notes and a hint of cocoa.
The wine goes well with beef, poultry, red meat on the grill, grilled meats, stews.
Roda Reserva - very expressive wine with great balance between freshness and maturity in bulk taste. Elegant and exquisite fragrant bouquet of wine after a while in the glass explodes with bright fruity notes that delightfully highlights subtle nuances of cocoa, spice and oak.
