Producer Benjamin Romeo

Benjamin Romeo has devoted his life to making great wine in Rioja. At this moment he owns 20 plots, with the age of his vines between 45-100 years old. He is currently using about 85% of his own grapes, and the rest he buys from other reputable growers. His goal is to use 100% of his own grapes. Benjamin Romeo maintains very low yields and carries out "green harvest". Grapes are picked manually, choosing only the best matured ones, but not over matured. The grapes are sorted also by hand, then they are put in small open barriques for fermentation.

Wine Advocate he 2005 La Vina de Andres Romeo is a bit more brooding and backward. Opaque purple/black, it has an alluring nose of toasty oak, pencil lead, scorched earth, espresso, truffle, and blackberry. Tightly wound but beautifully balanced, this is an opulent effort that requires patience. Give it 10-12 years of further aging and drink it from 2020 through 2040. Words can barely do justice to how singular these wines are. They must be tasted to be believed. Score: 98. —Jay Miller, February 2008.

Wine Spectator Expressive and graceful, this modern red shows bright berry and cherry fruit with floral, wild herb, smoky and spicy accents that power through the fresh texture and linger on the long, clean finish. Drink now through 2020. Score: 93. —Thomas Matthews, June 30, 2008.
