The 2005 Arroyo Reserva is medium to full bodied, with integrated aromas of cherry, prune, coffee and coconut. Tannins are refined (strain the sediment and decant for 30 min) and the finish is smooth and medium to long. It should age well for the next 5 years. My impression: NICE, 89.5 pts - a bit overpriced. Tasted Apr/11.
