Tasting notes Ramón Bilbao Reserva

It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
Sight Dark cherry, deep and dense. Nose Spicy and roasted aromas combined with light sweet, chocolate and red fruit notes. Taste This red wine is a great blend that can be stored for many years.
Sight Beautiful ruby red colour with brick red edges. Bright wine with thin and regular tears. Nose On first nosing, the nice balsamic and roasted aromas and the notes of sweet spices provided during the aging in American oak barrels for 18 months are displayed followed by intense, mellow notes of red fruit provided by its long maceration. As it opens up, some hints of chocolate, leather and tobacco are also noticed. A complex, intense and suggestive wine. Taste A wine with a very nice attack and a subtle and silky, very nice mid palate. It shows powerful and ripe tannins which provide the wine with a good astringency. It is very well structured and well balanced and has a lively acidity. A classic Rioja to be taken into account.

Sight Intense, bright cherry red colour with light touches of brick red. Nose Complex and intense aromas. After the first balsamic aromas typical of its time in the oak, the very ripe red fruit, almost jam, will appear powerfull on a background of spices with chocolate and coconut. Taste In the mouth, this is a full and lively red wine. The notes provided by the oak together with the notes of fruit make of this wine a full and tasty wine, with certain acidity that provides the right touch of freshness. Although tannins are well integrated, a certain point of astringency is perceived. Long finish with an aftertaste full of the complexity inherent to such a superior wine of Rioja.
Sight Intenseand dense  cherry-red. Nose Predominating aromas  of violets, blackberries, cedar, leather  and spice box. Taste On the palate its structure is medium and plays with various fruits and a genuine taste of ripen blackcurrant with a good balance and a pure finish. It shows juicy and flows broadly until a finish that remains a long time.

    Ramón Bilbao offers that analytical profile, capable of becoming positive, provided we can see the basic reasons that have lead to its maintenance and success for more than 80 years. Since then, this winery remains static in time, but the curious and refreshing personality of its wines have always combined perfectly with respect for tradition and the use of the most innovative technology.
