Fresh fruit aromas, dark and balanced like blackberries, black raspberries, almost plush and almost mouthwatering, a great and balancing combination. Earthy notes under layers of fleshy fruit and a touch of spice from the American oak. Pesquera Reserva tames the rawness sometimes found in U.S. oak, though, tamping it down aromatically, and taking advantage of its complexity on the palate, probably due to the barrel curing prowess of the Fernandez family. Deep, concentrated and refined, a very long and silky finish. Impeccable.

There's a lot to like here: assertive, flavoursome black cherry and plum fruits are dressed in cedary fresh oak. The right feel for the reserva grade. Drink now or hold.

Cherry red color with purple trim, very covered layer. Intense and complex nose, house brand. The aromas of black berries (raspberry and wild berries) and give way to a stunning succession of spicy (clove and licorice), hints of scrubland and mineral echoes in perfect harmony on a balsamic background and herbs. Wide, expressive and fleshy, with a noble and well-worked tannins but still very present in the mouth. Balsamic balanced and in step, known for its elegant finish with hints of licorice and cocoa. Long and very persistent, it is a wine made to last over time.
