Decanted for around two hours to open it up.

Still very big. Black cherry and leather. Has some tang to it.

Heavy use of oak. Medium plus body. Red fruit jam, dried dark berries. Medium acidity. Rough edges in the tannin departement. Nice concentration and offers what I like in Rioja nowadays. Please hold.

Excellent Reserva which accompanied our no menu, multi course meal. So much so, we had 2! And a third. Ouch.

Probably still young as showing nothing more than sweet blackcurrant, cherry & cocoa - @ £25 not one of their best but nothing offensive either - has 89-91 potential w/ more age but 87-88 today

🍷 Dark black ruby w/ purple edge

👃 Light oaky spiced blackcurrant & red cherry w/ a cocoa kiss

👄 Ripe dark sweet blackcurrant & red cherry w/ touch of cocoa

🎯 Med sweet blackcurrant & cherry
