2005 Benjamin Romeo - Rioja La Vina de Andres Romeo



Wine Spectator   Expressive and graceful, this modern red shows bright berry and cherry fruit with floral, wild herb, smoky and spicy accents that power through the fresh texture and linger on the long, clean finish. Drink now through 2020. 16 cases imported. Thomas Matthews
Wine Advocate   The 2005 La Vina de Andres Romeo is a bit more brooding and backward. Opaque purple/black, it has an alluring nose of toasty oak, pencil lead, scorched earth, espresso, truffle, and blackberry. Tightly wound but beautifully balanced, this is an opulent effort that requires patience. Give it 10-12 years of further aging and drink it from 2020 through 2040. Words can barely do justice to how singular these wines are. They must be tasted to be believed. Jay Miller
International Wine Cellar   Opaque purple. Explosive bouquet displays blackberry, mulberry, creme de cassis, cherry-vanilla and Asian spices. A zesty cracked pepper quality adds urgency to the deep, sweet dark berry flavors and a kick to the back end. Mixes depth and energy with a deft hand, finishing with exotic notes of floral pastille and spicecake. The spicy quality lingers endlessly, giving this wine an improbably vivacious personality. There are just 200 bottles of this for the United States. Josh Raynolds
