Plenty of American oak, but plenty of tertiary characteristics stand up to it pretty well

Strawberry candy and caramel aromas. Black cherry followed by leather. The tannins are wonderfully tempered resulting in a very smooth red. This was excellent alone and later paired well with steak.

Had this while in Gold Coast, Australia at a tapas restaurant. Just the right amount of boldness but not over the top! Not super dry but great flavoring to pair with meat, cheese and lamb.

Good Rioja flavor, a bit heavy on the mineral after taste. But perhaps that is a flaw of my taste buds tonight.

Sitting pretty good at 10 years old. Too oaky for my liking, but suits the style. Didn't help that the fruit was dropping off.
