So dark and rich, it is very 'satisfying,' but not very complex or Riojano in style. Should be great for both near and medium term drinking. Looses a bit of old world feel for me.

Snells of wild herbs and a touch of vanilla.

Medium to heavy bodied, olives, herbs, saline, any fruit is unripe, so more of an herb bomb.
Chewy, chewy cedar board tannins.
This would be good in 5 more years.

Isaac Fernandez Seleccion Acentor DOCa Rioja 2018 - 85% Tempranillo, 15% Graciano

Medium plus purple. Nose of blackberry, currant, cedar/pencil shaving. On the palate this offer similar dark fruits plus a toasted, pastry like note. Texturally is has medium acid, fine grained and persistent tannins that longer a bit and leave a firmly dry finish. This bottle has been open for a few days, so your mileage may vary.
Disclaimer that I import it and that is was just unloaded from a container within the last week.
