"The Reserva cuvée from Viña Jaraba is again a blend of seventy percent tempranillo, twenty percent cabernet sauvignon and ten percent merlot, with the wine aged in French and American barrels for twelve months prior to bottling. The wine is evolving very gracefully at age seven, offering up a deep and complex nose of black cherries, cassis, woodsmoke, a nice base of spice elements, just a whisper of the walnuts to come with further bottle age, a bit of chicory and a nice touch of cedary oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and resolving, with impressive complexity, a good core and fine length and grip on the classy finish. There is still a bit of tannin here to continue to carry the wine into the future, but it is wide open today and drinking very well indeed. 2018-2035"
