"Dried cherry, tobacco and potpourri on the nose, with herbal and mineral notes adding complexity. Deeply pitched redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors are braced by tangy acidity and pick up a candied rose note in the mid-palate."

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Sep/Oct 10 
($88; 80% Tempranillo, the rest Graciano, Garnacha and Mazuelo) Opaque purple. Dried cherry, tobacco and potpourri on the nose, with herbal and mineral notes adding complexity. Deeply pitched redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors are braced by tangy acidity and pick up a candied rose note in the mid-palate. This tastes like a traditional Rioja with the volume turned up to 11. Sweet red fruits linger on the very long, spicy, incisive finish, which shows no sign of the 100% new oak that was used here.

2005 Escudero Vidau
Rating: 90+
A Proprietary Blend Dry Red Table wine from
Rioja, Spain
Source: Wine Advocate #188 Apr 2010
Maturity: Drink: 2010-2020
Current (Release) Cost: $88 (88)
Bodegas Escudero’s 2005 Vidau is a blend of 80% Tempranillo with the balance Graciano, Garnacha, and Mazuelo sourced from a single 70+-year-old plot. The wine was aged for 15 months in new French and Romanian oak. A glass-staining opaque purple color, it reveals an aromatic array of pain grille, mineral, Asian spices, incense, black cherry, and blackberry. Medium to full bodied, on the palate it has excellent volume, ripe fruit, lively acidity, and incipient complexity. Give it 2-3 years of additional bottle age and my score could seem conservative. It should drink well through 2020 if not longer. Importer: Aurelio Cabestrero, Grapes of Spain, Lorton, VA;
Vidau Tinto DOCa Rioja
Technical Details
Varietals: 100% Vidau.
Alcohol: 14.00% Vol.
Aging: 10 months in French new oak.
The grapes come from the winery owned vine yard site “Cuesta la Reina” over 80 years of age. The manual harvest took place in October. In the pro­cess we do not use any pumping system, only gravity to avoid damaging the fruit. The fermenta­tion took place in stain less steel tanks with vine­yard yeasts, con trolling the temperature. The total duration of the maceration was 32 days. After the run off in December, the wine was transferred to French Allier and Romanian oak barrels where the wine was racked 5 times. Bottled in June (2 years later), remaining 12 months in the bottle cellar be­fore being offered for sale.
Well covered cherry red. In tense aromas with hints of ripe fruit, spices, balsamic and well assembled oak. Meaty and flavorful on the palate, well balanced and tannic. Nuanced long finish dominated by ripe fruit and aging notes.
Food Match
The wine will accompany perfectly with cheese, beef, roasts, big and small game, rabbit, partridge, wild boar, roe deer and even meats in spicy sauce.
Time and Words
With the word “Vidau”, our ancestors referred to those vineyards with which were planted with dif­ferent varietals. One word, a concept that Bodegas Escudero brings up to date from the past and pro­jects in to the future. From the best selection of ma­ture grapes from these old vines, arises grate full and sincere wine, very complex and very natural. A wine that sinks in to the roots of tradition and evokes memories of the time all that remains.
