The Hermanos Peciña are about as old school as they come. This is an arch traditional Rioja Reserva, with of course...

This pours bright with very mature brick-orange. It has a very rich, sweet nose of fig/date/raisin fruit, with...

Almost entirely old-fashioned in approach, the 2001 Reserva represents first-rate Riojan traditionalism. Brilliant,...

Aged for 36 months in used American oak barrels, then further aged in bottle for 7 years, which qualifies this wine as Gran Reserva level! This is an incredible example of tradtionally-styled Rioja, with lots of dried cherry, cedar and tobacco notes and flavours, and fine, elegant tannins. Drinking beautifully now. Love this wine.

It's gorgeously nuanced - creamy dried fruit interplaying with menthol, tobacco, and vanilla. These layers continue to linger in the mouth for what seems likes hours. Bold yet subtle. It's gorgeous.

The 2001 Señorío De P. Peciña Reserva 2001, was originally released by the LCBO on November 12th, 2011 and then again on November 24th 2012. It is composed of 95% Tempranillo, 3% Graciano and 2% Garnacha and was aged in oak barrels for 3 years and then in bottle for another 8 years. It is a medium bodied, aged wine, with intense aromas of dried red fruit, forest mushrooms, leather, oak and dried vanilla bean. It has a nice acidity, refined tannins (decant for 1-2 hours for the wine to display its bouquet) and a long to extra long finish. As the fruit is diminishing, I suggest savouring it by itself, but if need be, roasted beef will pair nicely; it is to be drunk now or held for few more years to 2015 with no added aging benefit. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 92 pts - recommended buy for that special night or to give as a present. Tasted Dec/12.

For those of us who are still learning the virtues of cellaring (or simply drink their wine too fast), it's a rare opportunity to purchase an aged wine that's ready to drink. This Rioja is a fantastic wine and I highly recommend it to friends who want a change of pace from fruit bombs.

I think i'd have rated this higher a few years ago. This has aged well but it has thinned out quite a bit. Nice brick colour. Nose has developed into an elegant bouquet of roses, tobacco and wood. A savory wine, not much fruit left at all.

It is a nice example of an aged Rioja but overall I'd say this is juuust past it's peak.

Well worth trying, but drink it now, and not with anything that will overpower this delicate old gal. Don't treat it like a young Rioja.

Pronounced oxydative character, tannins, flavour of dried figs, medium body. I'm glad I had a chance to try a traditional, aged Rioja, It was very interesting and not unpleasant, but I won't go out of my way for more.
I let the second bottle breathe longer and it was much nicer. Complex, enticing. Had it without food.
