El Coto Imaz Reserva DOC

Crafted from a selection of the best Tempranillo grapes in Rioja, this Reserva benefits from 18 months of aging in oak casks that provides great complexity with pronounced notes of ripe fruit, cocoa and well-balanced acidity. A great choice to pair with beef and other hearty meat dishes.

Dried violets, orange peel, citrus, undergrowth and spices. Racy and tight on the palate, which runs along in a guise of fresh raspberries and red cherries. Sweeps through a tangy finish. Delicious. Drink now.

Grainy American oak aromas of vanilla mixed with lightly spiced red fruit notes form a classic Rioja nose. A tight palate with wiry acidity is pointy as it delivers flavors of vanilla, dill, plum, red currant and wood spice. Oak is the prime player on the finish. Drink through 2023.

This red’s thick texture is built of muscular tannins and ripe fruit. Plum and currant flavors mingle with forest floor, clove and baking spice notes. Orange peel acidity keeps this lively. Solid. Drink now through 2030. 100,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported. — TM

Lots of blueberry and blackberry aromas with hints of walnut-shell follow through to a medium-bodied palate with firm tannins and a light finish. Some chocolate and wood character. Drink now.

The perfumed nose displays scents of ripe red fruits and candied flowers, and peppery spice, vanilla and cedar notes build in the glass. Juicy and appealingly sweet, offering vibrant black raspberry and cherry-vanilla flavors that steadily deepen on the back half. Finishes sappy and quite long, the slow-building tannins folding smoothly into the wine’s juicy fruit.
