Vina Mayor Reserva 2005
Alluring aromas of black cherry jam and mocha follow through to the palate of this round, jammy red. It has moderate tannins and juicy acidity,with a finish that brings you back for another sip.
Bodegas y Viniedos Vina Mayor, part of the H.A. Barcelo group, was founded in 1986 with the objective of crafting a limited production of high-quality wines, coupled with highly differentiated brands and products. The winery is surrounded by vineyards and completely integrated into the landscape, overlooking the sinuous turns of the Duero River as it passes through Quintanilla de Onesimo. Their wonderful location on the highway from Aranda de Duero to Valladolid places them on the "Golden Mile" of the Ribera del Duero winegrowing region. With only 24.7 acres of vineyard on the winery grounds, Bodegas Vina Mayor collaborates with the best grape growers in the region through long-term contracts. This allows them to control the quality of the grapes from the vineyard and assures grapes of optimal health and maturity, so that wines with personality, modern style, and elegance can be crafted. As a result, Vina Mayor's wines have repeatedly been awarded prizes by the world's most-prestigious wine guides and top competitions.
