Deep Ruby with dark berry fruit and sweet spicy aromas. On the palate blackberry and plum flavors with vanilla, cacao and herb spice character. Gritty fine tannins, medium+ ending with a fruit spice structure. Nice value.

Deep Ruby with dark berry fruit and sweet spicy aromas. On the palate blackberry and plum flavors with vanilla, cacao and herb spice character. Tannins are a bit grippy but soften when opened for 30 minutes, medium+ ending with a fruit spice structure. Nice value. Tasting Sample.

See previous note, some time has really improved this wine - represents outstanding QPR. Again, very international style Rioja - super generous & delicious

Not quite as stunning as the 2010 I had recently, but still represents an incredible QPR - this is a very forward / intl style Rioja, reminds me of a wine made by Valsacro - very generous & actually presents like a Bordeaux. Gobs of dark fruit, cacao, lead pencil, sweet spice, vanilla, etc. This lacked some suave character but maybe just needs more time.
