WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "The 2004 Gran Reserva spent 30 months in French and American oak. It is a mouth-filling, opulent effort from the great 2004 Read More...
vintage that straddles the line between traditional and modern-style Rioja. It offers up a soaring perfume of wood smoke, pencil lead, exotic spices, lavender, and blackberry that leads to a dense, impeccably balanced, lengthy effort that has the structure to evolve for 5-7 years while showing why 2004 is such an esteemed vintage in Rioja. It should see its 20th birthday in fine form."

It’s finally arrived!!! Founded in 1985, Baron de Ley is a single estate winery located in Rioja Baja focusing on high quality Reserva and Gran Reserva wines. Based on the “Chateau” concept, grapes are sourced exclusively from the property’s estate vineyards. This is an innovative step in a region where bodegas typically source grapes from independent growers throughout the area.

Baron de Ley’s unique personality blends the best of old and new. Located on the grounds of a 16th century monastery on the east bank of the river Ebro in Mendavia, the estate covers 175 acres planted primarily to Tempranillo, and a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon. Quality and attention to detail are an obsession at Baron de Ley, where the ancient architecture belies to the latest winemaking equipment.

We have been waiting for this 2004 Gran Reserva for a while. Tasting other vintages we think you will like this wine now as well as in the future.

On the nose, we get a vast palette of scents: black cherry, sandalwood, soy sauce, carob, mixed exotic spices and herbs, dark florals, black raspberry-- pretty much a "wow!" nose; very expressive. The palate leads with sweet fruit, more exotic spices, a dark medley of berries and minerality. This is elegant but confident wine as the flavors and scents merge harmoniously without 'too much' of any single component blaring through; this while the tannins and acidity interweave throughout the rich mouthfeel, uplifting and sustaining the complete mise-en-scéne of the wine. The finish is lengthy and tasty. Again: wow!

cigarbox overtones. Sweet, palate-coating cherry and cassis flavors are braced by gentle acidity and become spicier with air. Mocha and smoke note linger on a long, supple and gently tannic finish with very good energy.”

WINE SPECTATOR 90 POINTS - "Still fresh and bright, this juicy red offers cherry, berry, chocolate and licorice flavors. The tannins are light but firm, the acidity has an orange peel note, and the finish is sweet and clean. Drink now through 2015."

We see a pattern here—the 2001 Gran Riserva from Beronia made Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list for 2011, but the wine had just sold out when the list was published. Again, with the 2004 vintage, Beronia’s Gran Riserva made the Spectator’s Top 100 in 2012, about a month after the 2004 had completely sold out. We love the balance of age and aroma, pot-pourri flowers and lovely cherry fruit that we’ve seen in these Gran Riserva wines. The newly released 2005 Gran Riserva is here and it delivers again—a top quality wine aged for seven years at the winery to ensure prime drinking is a rare and beautiful thing in the wine business, and we love Beronia for their Gran Riservas.

WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - "The 2007 Reserva is a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 5% each of Graciano and Mazuelo that is aged in American and French oak Read More...
for at least 15 months. It has a generous nose of red cherries, over-ripe oranges and Indian ink that is attractive, if not overly complex. The palate is rounded and slightly leathery on the entry. It constitutes a sedate, mellow Reserva that has a classical personality. There is nothing wrong with that and I appreciate the balance and refinement on the off-dry finish."

this effort comes from vineyards in the foothills of Sierra Cantabria. Exceptionally ripe with a dark ruby/purple color, excellent texture, and outstanding concentration, length and equilibrium, this is one of the finest value-priced Riojas in the marketplace. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years."

Cune has forever been Hi-Time Staff 1 or our top 2 wineries in Rioja. We have had the privilege through out the years of tasting their Gran Reservas as far back as the 50’s. Our reactions are always the same, we ooh and awe, treasuring every sip. Just recently Wine Spectator’s Top 100 garnered Cune Imperial 2004 Gran Reserva as their #1 Wine of the Year. A truly fantastic vintage and yes, we sold out earlier in the year. We are able to offer their 2005 Gran Rerserva, which is another stellar year for Rioja. Limited supply.

and candied licorice. All of the above is framed in traditional Spanish fashion with the creamy vanilla influenceof American oak. Graceful and silky on the palate, the wine evolves nicely in the glass and brings a fair amount of complexityand richness to bear for the price. The wine’s even-keeled finish let’s you down softly and brings you back for more! A moreartisinal, feminine-styled Rioja, if you will, that represents a nice change of pace from the ocean of industrial-styled winecurrently permeating the marketplace! The name Deobriga (“Divine Bridge”) comes from “Deo” meaning God and “Briga”which means Bridge. Trust us, this is one bridge you don’t want to miss crossing!

STEPHEN TANZER 91 POINTS - "Opaque ruby. Sexy, high-toned cherry and blackcurrant aromas are complicated by notes of Indian spices and fresh rose. Read More...
Smooth and seamless in texture, offering intense black and blue fruit flavors that become spicier with air. The floral element repeats on the finish, which shows excellent clarity and persistence. This wine delivers uncanny value and has the structure to age."

When searching for our wine of the month for March, this one was roundly praised by all tasters. The nose is a sexy blend of cassis jam, blackberry pie, blackcurrant, Celon tea and charcuterie. The palate contains the same ripe, dark berries as the nose adding notes of tobacco and raw earth. Silky tannins and excellent structure, fine acidity, lead to a resounding finish with echoes of dried fruit and earthy spice.

100% Graciano
Now in the fourth generation of the Escudero family, Bodegas Y Viñedos Ilurce in general, and this Rio Madre in particular, takes full advantage of the climate and terroir in La Rioja Baja. “Lower” Rioja is drier and hotter than Rioja Alta, allowing for full ripening of and great concentration in the grapes. The Graciano grape is used mainly in the Rioja region, known for deep color, aging potential and aromatics.
