Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

On the nose, blueberries, cherries, light wood, earth, wet leaves, bitter herbs, peppercorn, tobacco, vegetables and pencil lead.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, strawberries, red currants, oak, tobacco, vegetables, earth, spices, wet leaves, bitter vegetables and peppercorn.

Medium minus on the finish with fine tannins and tangy pomegranates.


This is a nice Spanish Red from Rioja. Showing a nice mouthfeel with nice complexity. Earthy and spicy. A good food wine.

Needs an hour to open up properly and show some complexity.

A blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano. Aged for 24 months in French and American oak barrels.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14% alcohol by volume.

87 Points.

$25.

Great Tempranillo. Under $20. Needs to breathe at least 30 minutes to lose the tannic bite. Full flavor after that.

A knockout for this vintage. Concentrated fruit with and hedonistic oak aromatics. Refined finish.

Bit spicy for my tastes but still a good pick. Strong berry, deep reds.

Very interesting bouquet of red licorice and soft cherry.. Can definitely taste the 24 months of oak - not my fave but nice Rioja.
