The 2011 is a bigger wine. Some might say - and some here did - that it's more "exciting". That red/black mix is more like 20/80 here.

It’s altogether a more fruit-forward, riper, fuller-bodied, high-octane Rioja. One might even say (NB: I doubt Olarra would) that it has a bit more of the New World about it.

That extra fruit drive does come at the slight – and it is slight – cost of complexity and subtlety: the tobacco/leather/coffee/toffee tones are just a little more muted, although there is also more to come.

This is a wine that’s probably going to be best in the next 4-5 years, but that’s always hard to judge. If anything, the 2011, I might argue, is perhaps how you might expect an exceptional Reserva to taste; it definitely has a lesser sense of "fruit fade" than is common with Gran Reservas.

So, if you like your Rioja bigger, fruitier and less.. well… leathery, the 2011 is definitely for you.
