Bright pale lemon with aromas of stone fruit and citrus scents. On the palate flavors of apple and pear with citrus lemon zest with hints of salinity. Well balanced with pleasant lively acidity, finishing with mineral, citrus and wet stone nuances on the medium+ ending. Very nice, good value. — 5 months ago

Nice with filet mignon after a long day of cross country skiing. Smooth but the flavors are not as complex as other riojas we have recently had. — 4 months ago

Pop and pour through an aerator.
NOSE: cherry cordial, plum…fruit leathers from when I was a kid. Vanilla bean and chocolate. A little clove. Sandalwood. A dash of something tropical…like mango. Interesting.
TASTE: fresh cherry, nice zip of acidity, baking spices, fragrant wood, a little milk chocolate. Finished w/a little cooked meat. Medium weight, a little thin. Probably not worth the price to me - there are other Riojas in the same price range or cheaper that I much prefer - but good. 89.

What a rich, rounded and wonderful wine!
Paired with a shaved Brussel sprout salad and it was marvelous. The structure was still there after 17 years but the mouthfeel was rounded and smooth. Just a delight. — a month ago
