Tasting notes
Ruby with tile red hues, it showcases elegant aromas of spice and tobacco leaf. Unctuous, silky and round on the palate, its spicy ripe red berry complexity adds elegance and a savoury maturity to its long finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 89 points (Aug 2012)
The 2005 Rioja Bordon Gran Reserva has a similar bouquet to the 2007 Reserva. Raised for 36 months in American barriques, the nose takes time to unfold and offers scents of singed leather, sous-bois and pressed flowers. The palate is nicely balanced with fleshy supple tannins and a good acidity, the finish understated, very natural with tart red cherries and strawberry, interlaced with dried tobacco. Drink now-2019.
 Wine Spectator 92 points (May 7 2014)
This plump red offers juicy flavors of cherry, berry and orange peel, with tobacco and vanilla notes that float in a silky texture over light tannins. Delicate and elegant. Drink now through 2020.T.M.

Wine maker notes
Winemaking process: The must was fermented with the grape skins, and was stirred several times a day (this improves the extraction of colour and a constant temperature.) Fermentation lasted 10 days and the wine was left in contact with the grape skins another 7. Aging: Aged in American oak barriques of medium and intense toast for 36 months. Once bottled, it was aged for a further 24 months in our cellars before its commercialization.
