Castillo Labastida Rioja Reserva 2005 / 750 ml.

Item#: 68596

RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Jun 2010
The 2005 Reserva is a ripe, savory wine with a plush palate feel, good depth, and plenty of succulent fruit. It has enough structure to evolve for 1–2 years and will drink at its best from 2012 to 2020.
WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2011
Opens with leather and rubber and quickly moves to dry cherry, spice and balsam wood. The palate is balanced and healthy, with fairly thick and meaty plum and berry flavors cut by proper acids. Long on the finish, with a tobacco note and lasting berry length.

Where It's From

Appellation / Rioja

View more wines from Rioja

One of Spain's most famous wine regions, Rioja lies in north central Spain near the border with France along the Rio Oja River. In fact, many French winemakers moved to this mountainous region from Bordeaux in the 19th century to escape the blight of Phylloxera, which was prevalent at that time. Red wines are typically blends, most commonly using Tempranillo and Grenache (Garnacha) grapes. White wines here are made from Viura grapes.

Country / Spain

The picturesque countryside of Spain is littered with vineyards large and small, and offers up some of the best value available on the wine market today. You can consistently fine critically-acclaimed Spanish wines selling for less than their counterparts from other wine-producing countries. The Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions are most famous, and there's nowhere else in the world where you'll find as many world-class Tempranillos.
