Medium layer with a cherry red background and a bright red rim.
In a still glass, the red berried emerge smoothly. Once the aromas unfold, notes of ripe cherries and slight hints of ripe peach are revealed. It is finely spiced nature as well as a slight mineral sensation and the aromatic plants which are typical of Mediterranean climate years can all be clearly noticed.
Wood is almost imperceptible in spite of having been aged for one year.
It is ample, with sensations of well-ripened cherries.
The tannin is very good quality and has more presence and complexity than in previous vintages, while maintaining the friendly and enjoyable nature of Bodegas Roda's everyday wines.
It is long lasting and lingers in the mouth, and the aftertaste leaves a pleasant feeling of freshness.
This wine shows what an excellent vintage 2011 has been, with extraordinary maturity and the subtle influence of the Mediterranean on the vineyards in Haro.
An excellent vintage.
568 mm. rainfall during the vegetative cycle.
The 'high' temperatures in March and April caused an early budding of 15 days compared to 2010.
During the month of July, the temperatures dropped, the average monthly temperature of 19ºC, and the differences with 2010 were reduced to one week at veraison.
The low rainfall in the summer months and the high temperatures of August and September, with a lower production of the vineyard, made that the harvest come early, between 15 and 20 days, compared to 2010.
