On the nose, fresh, ripe floral; blackberries, black raspberries, blueberries & plum. Black raspberries cola, big vanilla, cinnamon, some clove & nutmeg, caramel, black licorice, dark rich soils, soft, dry, powdery minerals and lots of purple flowers & violets.

On the palate; the body is medium. The tannins are dark, slightly tarry and gently sticky. The fruits are ripe & juicy; blackberries, mulberries, plum, blue fruits & black raspberries with strawberries coming on late as it opens. Black raspberry & raspberry cola, soft baking spices of; vanilla, cinnamon, clove & nutmeg in that order of intensity, soft, black licorice, dark spice, soft powdery minerals and fine, dusty, dry rock powder, some rich, moist, dark semi-sweet earth, some leather, fresh, bright, purple flowers & violets, waterfall acidity and ripe, ruby, elegant, juicy, fruit finish with notes of earth. Delicious & very easy to drink.

Риоха в старом, классическом стиле. За 5 евро - находка.
