92 Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Bodegas Izadi's owner, the Anton family, also owns the well-known Finca Villacreces in Ribera del Duero. Izadi is a relatively large estate with more than 375 acres in Rioja Alavesa. About 40% of the vineyards are over 70 years of age, which is quite impressive. The 2010 Reserva is another remarkable bargain from European Cellars. Made from 100% Tempranillo aged 14 months in American and French oak, it boasts a dense purple color as well as a big, sweet perfume of cassis, vanillin, graphite and forest floor. Full-bodied and ripe with terrific texture, purity and palate presence, this wine can be drunk now or cellared for 5-10 years, possibly longer." (06/14)
"Vina Izadi was in fact the Anton family's first winery estate (even before Villacreces) as the family already owned old vineyards in the DOC. Located in Rioja Alavesa, Izadi aims to produce wines that express the character of the local varieties. They are developing their wines to be fresh with a touch of modernity - without forgetting tradition. The Anton Family founded Izadi in 1987 after years of running vineyards in Villabuena de Alaba. The Antons also own a one star Michellin Restaurant (Zaldiaran) in the hamlet of Vitoria.
Transformation of the winery happened in 1997, when Don Gonzalo Anton hired Mariano Garcia (winemaker for 30 years at Vega Secilia). Together with Angel Ortega (winemaker for Izadi), they created what we now recognize as the Izadi style: robust yet refined, modern and international. The word Izadi means Nature. The vineyards of Izadi are located deep in the heart of Rioja Alavesa, in the triangle formed by three villages, Villabuena, Abalos and Samaniego. The triangle pictured on the label of Izadi represents these three villages." - Importer
