Tasting Note

 

With significant toast and American oak spices, this has a fairly exuberant nose that includes red plums and cherries and even black fruits. Here Rioja’s savory side is all fresh herbs, and not at all bitter or vegetal; a vanillin finish. Drink now or over the next five years.
 

Wine Description

Intense and brilliant dark-cherry red, This wine is endowed with very pronounced aromas with good fruit and prominent notes of spices and new wood. It is robust in the mouth, pleasantly tannic, and displays a harmonious, very persistent finish.
