Bodegas Roda, Rioja Reserva 2010, In the blending of Roda, the wines are from plots of red berry fruit characters, with aromas that are to the fore, ready for immediate enjoyment.

Against all odds I gave the edge to the 2009 over the 2010 Roda Reserva, A blend of Tempranillo with 10% Graciano. This serious and very spicy wine mixes red and black fruit with an aniseed touch that slowly grows in the glass, serious and concentrated, ripe and fresh and getting closer to the profile of Roda I. It is starting to develop complexity and takes a little bit longer than the 2009 to unfurl its aromas and juicy palate, with very fine tannins. This is accessible today, but it will be even better with time in bottle. 118,795 bottles were produced.
