4 /5

The Coleccion 125 Reserva is a classic blend of Tempranillo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and is the flagship of Julian Chivite. The 125 reserva is a serious wine from a fresh and balanced wine year. The wine has a deep ruby ​​color. It has beautiful notes of black cherry, chocolate, plums and spices meditarene with a crunchy texture, good acidity and great balance. 125 Reserva Chivite Reserva is a classic and elegant wine suitable for a serious conversation. Typically what Luis Gutierrez (Wine-Advocate) wrote in his review for this wine: "one to share with your father-in-law rather than take to a party"
