Bodegas Roda

Rioja (Haro)

'Roda 1' Tempranillo 2016 1.5L Magnum


Also known as 'blue note', exclusive release from the Roda cellar.

100% Tempranillo. As Agustí says, "It is a wine with more structure, with deeper sensations of black fruits, greater wealth of minerals, and more complexity, marked by black cherry." Roda 1 is handled identically to Roda, but the blue-note fruit has a heightened minerality with fine but determined structure resulting from great tannin maturity. The differences between Roda and Roda 1 are simply the product of fruit selection, not winemaking. It's a wine of power with enormous finesse.

All blue-black and sooo beautiful to smell: animale meat’n’blood, plus road metal minerals gain pretty violets and a lash of mineral. The palate features astonishing tannin maturity, great spiciness with fine spicy oak tucked way in at the back, while the fruit runs in the plum and cola range, with black pepper and nutmeg. It’s power with enormous finesse. Great oral perfume driven by wonderfully mature tannin.
