Aged to perfection at this point. Earthy. still has a fair bit of acidity.

Not very good with a citrusy sweet dessert, but with some blue cheese and rye crackers it's very good. Still a tiny hint of restrained fruit left after 10 yrs. Relatively gentle but pronounced tannins with a mild long finish.

Leather, oak and red fruit, a well balanced and complex red.

Good tannin and fruit after 13 years. A little bit of Viejo raisin and black licorice. Maybe a little on the sweet side.

약간 시큼한 향의 바닐라 부드러움 조금만 더가면 중심인데 겉에서 머무는 느낌이 아쉽다 가격대비는 좋다

좋은 발란스. 신맛이 먼저 나오는게 좋음. 빈티지와 다르게 거친 느낌

Quite light and refreshing on first taste. Then deepens. A good one for summer.

altijd weer verbazend om zo'n fijne rioja uit zo'n fles te schenken ☺
Is al mooi rond maar mag nog een jaartje liggen.
