Bodegas Martinez Lacuesta RESERVA Rioja 2011 750ml
Josh Raynolds writes: Opaque ruby. Ripe dark berries, cherry pit and licorice on the spice-accented nose. Lush and appealingly sweet, offering juicy blackberry and cherry flavors that take on a smoky nuance with air. Closes spicy and long, with a hint of licorice and round, even tannins. Drinking 2022 - 2028. - Vinous 90
James Suckling writes: Aromas of ripe blackberries, dark cherries, dried herbs and spice box. It’s medium-to full-bodied with fine, supple tannins and tangy acidity. Juicy and nicely spiced. Try after 2023. - James Suckling 92One of my favorite Rioja Producers! Located in the town of Haro, Bodegas Martinez Lacuesta blends tradition and innovation with all of their wines. Nose: Cassis, dried herbs, and smoke meat. Palate: Medium-bodied with structure and medium tannins. Savory finish. Ideal to accompany any lamb dishes or poultry.
