Really liked this one. Our first choice out of four premium tastings. Just a wonderful wine. Big berry burst, yet supple tannins and hints of leather, chewy.

Rioja. Ohhhh oh! Riojaaaaa, ohhhh ohhh oh! It's good. Really good. Sucks the life out of your mouth . It's like second hand smoke with the tobacco.

Deep color of purple and deep ruby
Earth, licorice, tobacco, cherry and dabs of vanilla and toast. More powerful and modern fruit expression, firm, fleshy and ripe tannins, excellent structure. Good acidity and excellent depth. Excellent length and precision on the finish. A bit young now, should be a beauty in 5-12 yesrs and age for a total of 25 years easy. 18 months all new French oak barrique from 70-80 yo vines.

When good aged Riojas reminisce and pose as Burgundians... and still some years to go 🍷🍷

Big, mouth watering nose. Dark ripe berries, smoke, vanilla, cracked black pepper. A big wine that fills the mouth immediately but still refined and very elegant. Firm, chewy tannins carry through from start to a long finish. Cries out for smoked meats and strong, pungent cheeses.
