Tasting Notes

Located in Cuzcurrita de Rio Tirón (in La Rioja Alta), Bodegas Tobía (pronounced toe-BEE-ya) is an artisanal winery owned and operated by one of Spain’s top winemakers, Oscar Tobía. Oscar holds a Master’s degree in Oenology and Viticulture and is considered part of Rioja’s new generation of winemakers who combine professionalism, the spirit to embrace regional traditions, and the best of what new technology can offer.
Family-owned vineyards constitute 30 hectares, with a further 55 hectares coming from controlled local vineyards. Vineyards are planted to Tempranillo (73%), Garnacha (15%), Viura (8%), and Malvasia (3%). Production of the winery began in 1995.

Total production is approximately 500,000 bottles from a new state-of-the-art winery. In the cellar there are approximately 1,500 oak barrels – American (650), French (700), and Hungarian (150).

The 2012 Tobía Reserva is made from 93% Tempranillo (from old vines planted in 1921) and 7% Graciano. The grapes receive a long 28-day temperature-controlled whole-berry maceration, with regular over pumping. Aged in French and Hungarian oak barrels (2nd use) for 24 months before bottling, unfiltered.

Our tasting note: Deep dark cherry colour. The complex nose is of deep dark fruit aromas – cherry, raspberry, and blueberry – with well-integrated smoky, vanilla spice notes. There’s a touch of chocolate and baking spices on the finish. The wine is balanced, medium- to full-bodied, with full smooth tannins and a nice long fleshy/elegant finish.

Drinking nicely now, this wine will reward those with patience for 6-8 more years.
