Below is the January, 2008 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:



2003 Martin Cendoya Reserva

Tempranillo

Rioja, Spain

 

2003 Martin Cendoya ReservaThis is distinctive for Rioja, right down to its coppery color. Rich and full-bodied, it shows abundant black cherry flavors, with plenty of spice and vanilla. It has a velvety mouthfeel and a long, fruit-driven finish.

Produced from 100-year old vines, this wine is 80% Tempranillo, 15% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo, and aged 24 months in American and French oak and 24 months in bottle.

Rioja red wines are classified into four categories. The first, simply labeled "Rioja," is the youngest, spending less than a year in an oak aging barrel. A "crianza" is wine aged for at least two years, at least one of which was in oak. "Rioja Reserva" is aged for at least three years, of which at least one year is in oak. Finally, "Rioja Gran Reserva" wines have been aged at least two years in oak and three years in bottle. (Reserva and Gran Reserva wines are not necessarily produced each year.)
