Tasting Notes
93 POINTS "A worthy follow-up to the superb 2005" from Neal Martin in Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
96 POINTS "Oustanding" from Decanter Magazine - September 2013 Issue.
 
It has a deep garnet colour. The nose opens up with ripe blackberries, roast meats, licorice and some spice. It is really soft with a depth of flavour and the classic combination of ripe red berry fruit, cedary oak and smooth, fine tannins. Very elegant, subtle and classically structured.

Our Comments
Another great wine from Valenciso!
 
Enjoy this now, or put it away to age and be rewarded in future years.

PARKERS NOTES: The 2006 Reserva has a classic, very pure bouquet of warm leather, dried herbs and dark berry fruit, and it offers scents of melted tar with continued aeration. The palate is very harmonious with succulent red cherries, mulberry and dried fig, with subtle white pepper notes sprinkled over the finish. This constitutes a worthy follow-up to the superb 2005 and will have the same propensity to age. Drink now-2025.
