A wine that is evolving slowly, leaving behind a complex savoury character which mingles with red plums, vanilla and full grainy tannins. A benchmark for a long ageing Rioja with quality. Drinking Window 2017 - 2025

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. Drink through 2021.

This red has a firm, lean texture, and offers dried cherry, tobacco, tea and loamy earth flavors that have a savory character. Orange peel acidity opens the wine to a spicy finish. Drink now through 2022. 19,770 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.
