Still dark and opaque. Rich fruit nose. Notes of black cherry, mocha, mahogany and a hint of espresso. Rich and silky in the mouth. Long finish. A nice contrast to the Montelena Cab. My last bottle unfortunately.

Better of the two old Riojas - initially this didn’t show as well but after an hour very cool wine! Freshness and tannins still there in a very elegant form! 😊

Threw a ringer in and a few liked this as much as any other bottle. Dark reddish tawny. Nice nose with notes of blackberry, wood, plums and brush. Balanced and memorable finish.

Never in its youth have I enjoyed this ever so much -this is now ripening beyond that sweet coconut and spiced plum to a meaty hardwood spice with great depth.

Tawny dark ruby. Barely translucent. Fragrant nose with notes of black fruit, blueberries, wood and smoke, unsweetened chocolate and forest floor. Very balanced in the mouth with velvet warm fruit matched with nice structure and resolved tannins. Great finish. A wonderful rioja.
