Excellent expression of Rioja from this high-end winery, located near Haro, in one of the most historic parts of La Rioja. Despite the historic location, Roda wines tend to be fairly modern expressions of Rioja, with concentrated dark fruits and a solid backbone of French oak present.
Roda I Reserva comes from a harvest classified as "Muy buena" (very good) and is starting to drink nicely now. What I love about this classy wine is it´s impeccable balance and the fruit which is dense, but not too dense nor jammy. The oak is judged to perfection, sitting quietly on the sidelines, present whenever needed, but not intrusive. Roda I wines age surprisingly well, with the 1994 and 1995 holding up very well at a tasting in 2013 to celebrate the winery´s 25th anniversary.
