Wine Advocate 93 points - The 2009 Reserva was aged for approximately 18 months in 30% new French oak from various coopers. It is listed at 14% alcohol. Of all the Reservas here, this is the one that coats the palate the most and feels the fullest on opening -- perhaps, to state the obvious, a function of the vintage, its youth, or more likely a mixture of both. Even though it tightens dramatically with air, it also demonstrates how fine its fruit is at various times, while keeping its balance and returning to the place the others got to sooner: well-balanced and rather elegant. By a tiny margin, this might well be my pick of the vertical, granting that the 2000, 2004, 2007 and 2008 are all in better places now. This is still relatively undeveloped and needs to pull in its oak, which it most certainly will do. At the moment it is a touch one-dimensional. That, too, will change. It will not hit peak and show all it has, perhaps, for 4 to 5 more years. While it can now seem approachable and drink great (at least after 60 minutes of the bottle being open and the wine in the glass for another hour), I watched this continue to improve over the next 3 hours. It is luscious on opening, but still, relatively speaking, subtly impressive. It just needs some complexity and character, and that will take some cellaring. Drink 2016-2029.
