Red fruit, strawberries and wet leaves, some dark notes, medium bodied, tense tannins and an extremely high acidity (2013 was a rainy one in Rioja). Noticeable oak. Drunk too young maybe

The 2009 very much enjoyed with a lovely dinner of grilled mushrooms and Turbo in Seville. Nice structure, vanilla oaky flavors nicely integrated, needed to breath a bit before drinking, I imagine lots of further aging potential here.
