Killer wine, especially at the price point. Dried black cherries, plums, baking spices, dried tobacco, dried leather, eucalyptus, dust and smoke. Nice grippy tannins on the palate, but with a certain suave finesse that belies its age. Delicious.

Full body. Dry but not overly so. Opened nicely. Mostly black cherries, strawberries, and blackberries on the palate with some nice spicy undertones.

A fresh and lively Gran Reserva. Classic Rioja flavors abound here, which is more than okay.

Nariz: cereza, mora, cassis, cuero, vainilla, rosas

Boca: Seco, Tanino M+ juveniles pero sedosos al mismo tiempo, Acidez M, Alcohol M. Largo en boca.

Buen balance. Puede tomarse, pero aguantaría mucho mas en botella también. Muy buen vino por <$30.
