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
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Jun 2011)
The 2005 Reserva is composed of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Garnacha, and 5% Graciano made in a relatively tight, lean style. It exhibits a nose of wood smoke, tobacco, mineral, and blackberry leading to a structured offering whose tannin persists into the finish. While greater harmony may be achieved with several years of additional cellaring, that is not a sure thing.

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.
