Unbelievable! Had this at a Brazilian Steakhouse. Had a glass immediately, the balance was decanted and wow! The fruits were wonderful. After an hour the taste of pepper and fruit was unforgettable! Delish and I’ll get more!!

I enjoy riojas but this one is a bit harsh and hard to enjoy. 2013 bottle.

2013, this Rioja has notes of charred vanilla or caramel on the front palate. Extremely dry and lots of oak. Medium bodied and juicy!

Musty and meaty, with some floral, it sort of prune but not really, it's just old world and not really any fruit or Berry, blueberry if you really dig, very very dark and inky, not sweet, very nice tannin finish that lays complexity on the tongue, honestly it's not earth, it's bbq sauce with prunes but not in a sweet way but delicate and subtle

Went very well with short rib. Nice acidity, well balanced. Dry, not too big bodied.
