Characteristics of Viña Pomal Reserva 106 Barricas

Viña Pomal Reserva 106 Barricas is a red wine from the D.O. La Rioja produced by Bodegas Bilbaínas. This wine is a blend of 3 different grape varieties: Tempranillo (90%), Garnacha (5%) and Graciano (5%).


The grapes used to make Viña Pomal Reserva 106 Barricas are taken from an estate that is situated just 2km from the winery, close to the river Ebro and the town of Haro. This close proximity allows for the grapes to be swiftly transported to the winery after the harvest has been carried out.

The estate is home to various ecosystems, depending on the various soil types and varying levels of exposure to sunlight. Therefore in order to obtain the best quality grapes possible, various methods of precisión and traditional viticulture are used on the estate.

The grapes used to make Viña Pomal Reserva 106 Barricas, are being selected at the winery, ferment with native yeasts at a temperature of between 28-30ºC. After maceration is carried out for 25 days.

Before being bottled, Viña Pomal Reserva 106 Barricas ages for 20 months in oak barrels (84% American, 16% French), a third of the barrels are new. During this phase, several rackings take place to manually in order to ´clean`the wine manually.

Viña Pomal Reserva 106 Barricas then rests for another 2 years in the bottle before being marketed.

Tasting notes Viña Pomal Reserva 106 Barricas

After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
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.
Viña Pomal Reserva 106 Barricas 2013 is a mature red wine with structure and balance. This vintage clearly and elegantly shows the notes of its ageing, along with roasted, cocoa and tobacco notes. In the mouth, it is pleasant, with a full mid-palate and a very long finish.
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.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.

Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

The century-old Bodegas Bilbaínas were born with a French heart and were established with a Riojan spirit. Bodegas Bilbaínas is the oldest bottling firm in La Rioja. It is the winery with the largest surface area of underground caves ("calados") in the whole region (3,400 m2). It also has the most extensive area of vineyards in the municipality of Haro. Since the beginning, the winery has been defined by its deep knowledge of the territory and the care in the production of its single-vineyard wines. These are extremely identified with the plots where they came from, hence their names: in 1911 Viña Pomal was created; in 1921, Viña Zaco; in 1923, the white wine Viña Paceta; and the range was extended in 1994 with La Vicalanda reserva, a distinguished and expressive wine that was born from the 9-hectare farm, selected in the vineyard area of Viña Pomal.
