Winemaker’s Notes: Aged for 3 months in new French oak barrels, Izadi Blanco is straw yellow in color with bright green tones. Succulent fruit in a fresh wine. Well structured and a good acidity rate. A blend of 70% Viura, 10% Malvasía, 10% Tempranillo Blanco, 10% Garnacha Blanca.

93 Points James Suckling: Quite fragrant black fruit aromas with concentrated dry tannins to balance them. Plenty of life, too. Better from 2018.
90 Points Wine Spectator: This generous red delivers cherry, berry, vanilla, orange peel and baking spice notes, with light tannins and juicy acidity. Forest floor and tea details give this a traditional character. Drink now through 2023.
Winemaker Notes: Aged for 16 months in French and American oak barrels, Izadi Reserva is a shiny ruby color. Rich aromatic intensity with a nice balance of red fruit, liquorice and spices and smoked hints in the background. Elegant and round in the palate with a long aftertaste that brings back floral and fruity memories.
