This wine has lots to offer, but with limited push for greatness. It just needs more energy. Otherwise, no complaints. Good oak integration.

Capa media, limpio y con un color granate muy bonito. En nariz frutas negras y cacao, mermelada, vainilla y cuero. En boca muy buena entrada, cálido goloso y con gran final.... Sorpresa...

Very classic Rioja style Tempranillo enveloped inside the tannins and dark fruit from Cab Sauv and Syrah. Had the 24 hours later without any proper storage, tannins were more prominent.

A little molasses and dark fruit (maybe a hint of tobacco?) on the front of the palette. Oak on the finish. Really, really spectacular.

Outstanding blend. Slight tobacco flavor. Heavy enough for meat but light enough for bread.
