The Solar de Randez Reserva Especial is the top wine of Raimundo’s Rioja Alavesa selection. Coming from the best of the 60+-year-old vines of the estate, this red is predominately Tempranillo, and blends in about 10% of the family’s gorgeous Graciano vines. The grapes were picked on the same day and fermented naturally together in French barrique, where it also laid to rest for 24 months before bottling. Three years in bottle gave this wine the proper time Raimundo desired before releasing it to the market as a Special Reserve bottling. The result is rich with floral tones, fruit, leather, and spice on the nose. A presence of oak exists on the tongue texturally, adding to the elegance of the classic Rioja backed terroir.
