93 Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2010

($270; 100% new oak) Extremely aromatic bouquet of oak-spiced dark berries, cherry compote, vanilla and incense. Rich but in no way heavy, showing good lift to its liqueur-like blackberry and blueberry flavors. Velvety tannins add shape to the long, sweet, alluringly spicy finish. This will drink well young but Roda's director Agustin Santolaya told me that he thinks the 2007s will surprise people. "This is an Atlantic vintage that appeals to people who like their Riojas feminine and balanced rather than massive," he said. "The best 2007s have the balance to keep aging after many of the hotter vintages have collapsed under their weight and alcohol." (Kobrand Inc., New York, NY)
