Medium to full body. Firm but smooth tannins come from 28 months in small American oak barrels. Wonderfully balanced. Cesar, leather, mineral, dark fruit

Fruit for the selecion especial come from mugas highest altitude vineyards. They pick very late - second week in November. Tempranillo 70%. Garnacha, graciano, mazuelo.

A bit gamey, classical, great acidity and red and dark fruit. Good length, but brett

Red berries, vanilla, licorice and leather. Medium to full bodied with bright acidity and lingering tannins. Very good now with some air but should be outstanding in a few years when the tannins have smoothed out a little bit more.

OMG this was so amazing. Smoke, dark berry, spice. Best deal on the planet, I'd say.

Fantastic Rioja producer. This wine is rich, almost sumptuous. Deep color, exploding with fruit, well balanced, long finish.
