The 2009 Vina Eguia Reserva is quite similar to its Crianza sibling from 2010, a little more powerful but not necessarily better, with perhaps a more developed bouquet showing some Mediterranean herbs, dark ripe cherries and black pepper. The palate is crisp, with good acidity and length.
Aromas of dark berries, vanilla, burnt toast and aromatic herbs are balanced by the supple finish.
Tempranillo is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, after which the wine aged for 24 months with three rackings into American and French oak barrels.
Ideal all type of grilled and roasted meats. It also matches well with strong fish and all kind of cured cheeses. Tasty with chocolate desserts and puddings.
