Great fruitiness from Tempranillo. Hints of cedar and leather with spices of cinnamon or vanilla. Full body, round and soft tannins. Rustic style, characterful from an excellent vintage, just beautiful!

AWARDS

Robert Parker: A worthy follow up to the 2004 is the 2005 Viña Bosconia Reserva, a wine that they consider the most rustic and powerful in the winery, but that I find as elegant and subtle as it gets. This feels very much in line with the 2004, maybe a notch above even, a lower yielding year. The nose is somehow closed and feels young with the elegant rusticity lurking from the bottom of the glass, clean and precise. The tannins are velvety and there is great acidity--a constant here. The wine is terribly elegant. I simply loved this wine. 94/100

James Suckling: The texture to this mature red is so brilliant with soft and silky tannins that are so fine. Full body, with plum, cedar, and chocolate character. Hints of spice. 93/100
