The four grape varieties involved in the production of Darien Reserva, Tempranillo / Garnacha / Mazuelo / Graciano are hand picked and vinified separately. The more structured cuvees are selected which will best benefit from extra ageing, at least one year for a Reserva, in American and French oak.
The 2007 Darien Reserva is still youthful, bursting with blackcurrent fruit with impressive backbone, so impressive in fact that it won the February Decanter Magazine Rioja tasting, beating 117 other wines with over 19 pts!!!. The availability is very limited so fill your boots.
Founder Luis Ilarraza, made it his dream to create a bodega where he could make his own personal wine, one in which he would blend all the traditional essence of Rioja wine from the most ultra-modern vision of the winemaking, both in terms of the wines themselves and of the building which would be their home. "Darien is an avant-garde winery surrounded by vineyards in which the latest technology winemaking allows us to produce personal and modern wines." http://www.darien.es/eng/bodega-arquitectura_eng.php

“High-toned baked fruit, spice, raisin, mint and vanilla on the nose. Super wine which is sweet, upfront and approachable. Typically supple and juicy balanced by crisp acidity and chalky tannins. Elegant."
Deep purple colour, great concentration on the nose, deep jammy fruit nose spicy eucalyptus. The palate is dense with gobs of ripe damson fruit and generous tannins. A spicy rugged finish. Long and grilled. Will evolve very well over the next 12 - 18 months.
