Lovely fully mature Rioja. Needs 3 hours to open into spicy ripe strawberry and savory flavors and aromas. Somewhat past prime.

Initially a bit sour and overripe on the palate. Should develop with time and air after two hours

Nose of sweet mixed berries jam, with strong vanilla and oak. Light ruby color, medium body, soft like a suede but with powerfull acidity punch and cola aftertaste, does not feel jammy thanks the acidity & has this sweet/acidic soda aftertaste (cherry coke?). In mine opinion the taste is a bit unbalanced, like acidity rollercoaster to it's sweet base, with ignoring tannins, but for the price It's really great value. Cost about 7eur so it performs great for the entry level.
