Castillo de Sajazarra Reserva 2008 – 91 Points

castillodesajazarra91 Points

Smoke and leather aromas are matched by dried red fruit and spice tones. This is racy on the palate, with a fairly full body. Vanilla and caramel flavors turn darker and toastier with airing, while the fruit on this older Rioja favors cherry and currant. Cocoa, tobacco notes with a juicy length define the finish. Drink through 2024. — M.S., Wine Enthusiast, 2/1/2015
