Dense, vibrant purple. Grilled herbs, sexy oak, violets, plums and blueberry. Dense, long, tannic and yet very fine grained. Should age into something special.

Pale onion skin. Densely structured, impactful palate, both dense/viscous and crisp/acid. Should be great w red meats. — a year ago
I'm between very good and outstanding because while it's aging incredibly well, it's just not my style of wine, it doesn't make me go "mmmmm". Medium+ acidity, medium alcohol, medium+ body and medium+ intensity flavors of cranberries, ripe stewed cherries, leather, paprika and smoked meats. #riojaelegance #riojapassion #riojapower #riojalover #riojawine #chirel #tempranilloblend #tempranillo — 2 years ago
