Caramel, bay and olive. Medicinal but with that smooth kola quality. Serve this the traditional way with ice, soda water, a wedge of lemon and green olives and you can’t go wrong.

Deep Ruby, aromas of sweet red and black fruits with pepper spice and oak. 4 grape blend from some of CVNE's best vineyards in the Rioja Alta (85% Tempranillo, rest Garnacha, Mazuelo & Graciano), aged in both French and American oak for 24 months. On the palate flavors of blackberry and currants with licorice, vanilla, tobacco & toasty oak tones. Soft full ripe tannins, wonderful balance, lively acidity on a long finish ending with an earthy mineral character. Very nice! Tried several bottles! — 6 days ago

At Melody wine bar with dinner. This is energetic and lively. Has more savory characteristics and at the time I was seArching for more fruit...don’t want to let that shade my opinion but it’s good to know, especially because this was served chilled...I feel it would have been better more room temp — 17 days ago
good smooth Chardonnay with hints of fruit — 3 hours ago
A light bodied country red with heady herbs in the bouquet that carry over into the taste where it melds with the berry flavors. Drink it slightly chilled. — 15 days ago
Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.
Nice fruity nose with cedar, black currants, black cherries, light earth, vegetables, vanilla, licorice, spices, dark chocolates and black pepper.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, leather, vanilla, spices, espresso, chocolates, light earth and peppercorn.
Medium finish with grippy tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a nice Tempranillo from Rioja. Still young, but already enjoyable, even by itself.
Good right out of the bottle, but after an hour of airtime, tannins come in with nice structure. I really enjoyed the nose here.
Showing a great mouthfeel, but might be much for some (grippy tannins). Needs 5 years in the bottle to chill out.
I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.
100% Tempranillo grapes were aged in French and American oak barrels for 12 months.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
