    Facts

    Alcohol: 13%

    Barrel Type: Aged 18 months in American oak barrels (20% new); once bottled the wine rests for 24 months in the bottle.

    Viña Pomal Reserva follows the classical model of Bodegas Bilbainas Reserva wines. It is made according to a traditional Rioja process: a moderately long maceration time and, after alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, the wine is decanted and clarified slightly before being moved to casks. Then the wine is aged in semi new American oak casks for eighteen months. After its time in the cask, the wine will rest for two years in the bottle before going on the market.

    Tasting Notes

    The color is brilliant and clear; ruby with slight russet hues. There are clean, intense aromas on the nose with prevailing notes of red fruit intermingled with tobacco, truffle and vanilla. The palate shows a supple, smooth texture with a long finish.
