Deep red with a blue edge, Roda Reserva reveals red fruit with predominant cherry notes. The nose shows oak aromas with sweet, fresh spices; on the palate, long flavors of fresh red fruit converge with well-integrated tannins in a full-bodied wine with a lengthy finish.
Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2006 Roda Reserva is a pure Tempranillo aged in French oak of which half is new. It has a clean and fresh, almost clinical bouquet with fresh red berry fruit, wild strawberry and raspberry mixed with leather and bay leaf. The palate is very well-balanced with supple tannins on the entry. It builds nicely in the mouth, leading to a very elegant, supple finish of wild strawberry, raspberry and cocoa, kept in focus by a well-judged citric thread that runs through from start to finish. This is one of Roda’s finest wines. Drink 2013-2022. ” (Aug 2012)
Mario Rotllant and Carmen Daurella have prioritized quality above all else since founding Roda in the late 1980s. Grapes for Roda Reserva are harvested from 28 carefully supervised vineyard blocks spread out among the best terroirs of Rioja. Each year only the top 17 blocks are vinified, guaranteeing superior grape quality. A team of 30 harvesters that returns year after year selects the grapes by hand. Typically two or three separate pickings are carried out to ensure that the grapes are perfectly ripe.
