Raspberry confit, rhubarb pie and pipe tobacco nose. Lovely concentration with present but resolved tannins and a beautiful finish. *2018 Decanter World Wine Awards, Gold Medal*
This is the kind of light and fragrant Rioja that makes me smile. It stands out in a crowd of modern, concentrated wines with its delicate rose-petal scents and plump freshness. Still youthful, its 12 years of age show in a heady richness that underlies the fruit, as if the darkness of mazuelo had begun to saturate the austere structure of tempranillo, all of it energized by a touch of purple graciano in the mix. It’s easy to imagine the lamb chops coming straight off the grill as you taste this wine.
Smooth, welcoming aromas of cola, black fruits and integrated oak are soft and indicate that this is ready to drink. A plump, sappy palate delivers ripe berry and chocolate flavors, while this is fleshy on a finish weighted down by berry pulp. (MS)
Good depth here with rich plum and black-cherry flavors. Plenty of spicy and earthy development too. The tannins are nicely honed and the acidity sizzles away on the finish.
