Fresh and lively, this red shows bright fruit and spice flavors, with cherry, berry, vanilla and anise notes that mingle over light tannins and orange peel acidity. Harmonious and graceful, expressive and alluring. Drink now. 148,000 cases made.

This wine offers a mix of floral, berry and earthy aromas on the nose. It reflects its fine vintage, displaying firm tannins on a tight palate. Dried plum, cherry, tomato and herbal flavors finish with tension and wiry freshness. Drink through 2027.

The 2005 Faustino I Gran Reserva has a classical, oaky profile, with developed aromas but still keeping some fruit. The palate is medium-bodied and polished, but I expected a little more weight and depth. This brand represents around 40% of the total Gran Reserva Rioja sold in the world with 520,000 bottles produced. Drink Date: 2016-2020.
