This focused red shows good density, a restrained character and solid depth, offering plum, espresso

Tasting notes
Viña Herminia Reserva is a wine created to continue evolving over time. Tasting: an intense ruby colour with red brick tones. Aromas of jam, spices, vanilla, leather and chocolate. In the mouth it is round and warming, with great length and soft tannins.

Rating
2009: 93 Points - Thomas Matthews, Wine Spectator: "This focused red shows good density, a restrained character and solid depth, offering plum, espresso, tobacco and mineral flavors that are harmonious and long. Not showy, but solid. Drink now through 2022."


Technical notes
Located in the Rioja Baja, at the southeastern end of the Rioja, Viña Herminia belongs to the owners of Emilio Lustau. They offer a full range of Rioja wines, from vineyards on the slopes of Monte Yerga and Monte Argudo, up to an altitude of 700m. Together with the warmer climate, this ensures rich, generous, fruity wines of enormous appeal. Respected Australian winemaker David Morrison is now involved, and his influence on quality is immediately evident in outstanding 2001 Excelsus. Best of all, the Viña Herminia range is very reasonably priced.

Other text
Vina Herminia Reserva is composed of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Garnacha. Aged 18 months in American and French Oak and further aging of 18 months in bottle.
