José Manuel Pérez Ovejas, enologist of Bodegas Hnos. Pérez Pascuas presented Vina Pedrosa Reserva 2011 as one the best reserva wines made by Viña Pedrosa over the last 10 years. “ It is a gorgeous effort this estate. This expressive red wine is a blend of 90% Tempranillo with 10%  Cabernet and was aged for 24 months in French and American oak before bottling. Aromas of sandalwood, roasted figs, nutmeg and boysenberry. There are flavors of red currant, cassis, orange rid and tar. Lovely balanced and weight with a lingering berry and citrus driven finish. This will have an exceedingly long life.” He declared.
