Fairly earthy but also smooth and inviting. This wine shows a reserva's higher oak level but also a higher level of fruit quality than the winery's 2002 Crianza. The palate is all about red berries, while the feel and finish are crisp and integrated. Nearly mature and pretty much ready to drink now. 250 cases made. Imported by Freixenet USA.
