My 16-month tasting cycle means I sometimes get to taste two consecutive vintages of the same bottling, which is a great opportunity for comparison. Such was the case with the 2015 and 2014 Viña Pedrosa Reserva. 2014 was an almost perfect, classical year, with good ripeness, and the wine has had the advantage of one more year in bottle and shows more aromatic complexity and nuance. The 2014 is more expressive and open, and the balance shows one touch fresher than the 2015. It has an intoxicating combination of spice, earth, fruit, herbs and ink and a seamless palate with refined tannins and great balance. Again, a textbook Reserva. 69,960 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2017.
