Roda es una de las casas más reputadas de Haro y de la denominación de origen Rioja. Elabora este tinto desde el año 2008. Su 'coupage' de Tempranillo, completado con un pequeño aporte de Graciano, hacen de él un vino muy frutal en nariz, sedoso y fácil de beber.

Opinión de los críticos
I was surprised to see how different the blend for the 2015 Sela was in comparison to the 2014, with a lot more Garnacha (10%) along with 82% Tempranillo and 8% Graciano, as both Garnacha and especially Graciano like warmer vintages. They call 2015 a perfect Mediterranean vintage with perfect ripeness, and in this vintage, they followed the same modus operandi as they did for all the reds, with natural fermentation in French oak vats. In this case, the élevage was in mostly new barriques and lasted 12 months. It's very balsamic, with aromas of Mediterranean herbs, aromatic, open and expressive. The palate is juicy, and there's great balance between fine tannins and acidity, with very clean, focused flavors and with more structure and volume but keeping its poise. One of the best Selas ever. 96,539 bottles were filled in May 2017.
A very refined and beautiful wine with fine tannins, lovely fruit and hints of fresh herb and wet earth. Medium body and a long finish. Shows such finesse and complexity. Hitting above its fighting weight. Drink now.
