Good wine but a little bit overdone on the wood and consequently the vanilla flavour. Personally, I think a bit more "elegance" would be better

39 years later, she's softened quite a lot but still holding on. Thinned sweet and sour cherries, underbrush, saddlewood, rustic, sawdust and a long elegant sweet cherry finish. Drink now if you have it. Amazing with the ribeye in butter.

Extremely hard to go wrong with this. Textbook Rioja which never disappoints.
