Ramirez de la Piscina Reserva 2013


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Dark purple. Fragrant dark fruit and smoky oak aromas are complemented by vanilla and licorice. Spicy and broad on the palate, offering concentrated blackcurrant and floral pastille flavours and a hint of mocha. Finishes smooth and quite long, with soft tannins building slowly. The aging regimen here was 18 months in French and American oak barrels, followed by two years in the bottle.

Wine SpectatorThis plump red offers cherry and vanilla flavors that show a spicy sweetness, balanced by leafy, cedar and tobacco notes. Light, firm tannins add ballast. A graceful example of the traditional style. Drink now through 2023.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine's spiced plum and berry aromas show hints of animal fur and leather. The palate is rough around the edges, offering plum and berry flavors that have veered toward prune. Savory spice and chocolaty oak notes mark the finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Reserva was produced with Tempranillo and aged in French and American oak barrels for 24 months. It's a challenging vintage; the élevage might have been too much, and the palate shows fruit that is receding and a tannic structure that might remain. Time to drink up, with food.
