Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2005 Dioro was produced from a stricter selection and was aged in new French oak for 12-14 months. A saturated purple color, it displays a brooding bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, espresso, truffle, and blackberry. Dense and loaded on the palate, it has gobs of ripe black fruit, excellent balance, and a lengthy, pure finish. It will continue to blossom over the next 3-4 years and have a drinking window extending from 2014 to 2025. ” (Jun 2010)

Producer
The Escudero family has been making wine and growing grapes for generations in the rugged, semi-desert foothills around Gravalos in the southwestern corner of the Rioja Baja region. Over the last 15 years or so, the Escudero brothers led by Bordeaux-trained winemaker Amador have transformed the small family ”bodega” into a major Rioja wine producer. The changes have come gradually and in addition to the new winery at Pradejon (near Calahorra) they have greatly extended vineyard acreage, a very successful ”cava” sparkling wine venture (one of the few non-Catalonian cava makers), and extensive Chardonnay plantings (disallowed in Rioja, but OK for cava). Amador, now in his mid-forties, is not one to shy away from taking risks to make things happen. The Vinsacro (formerly Valsacro) project is an excellent case in point.
