Exceptional, fantasticly made, powerful, elegant, fresh, sure to age gracefully. The oak is perfectly integrated, with firm tannin and a tightly wound structure framing the long, youthful and powerful multi-dimensional finish. 20-25,000 bottles in production.

Very expressive nose displaying complex aromas of walnut, vanilla, cedar, sweet ripe plums, dark cherries and hints of liquorice.
It is dry and intense in the palate, with a tasty concentration and fine-grained firm tannic structure. The alcohol is well-integrated and balanced by a medium+ lively acidity. It is full-bodied and ends with a persistent and pleasant aftertaste.
It is an outstanding example of non-traditional but not too modern Rioja either. Very balanced and with elegant and well-integrated oak notes.

Real well made wine, balanced, lots of acid for a Rioja. Aged characteristics. Soft

Great recommendation from Sommelier. Enjoyed this at opening of Honey's in Chicago. A true Spanish Tempranillo! Loaded with that nice bold yet dry flavor. Hints of hardwood smoke and dark cherries. Mild tannins and smooth finish. A true classic!

Young, disjointed, yet alluring. Initially the fruit and structure comes in as stages on the palate. Takes many hours to come together. Liquorice, olives, and cherry... Slightly strange combo... But after some time comes together. Assume this will integrate in decades. Fun ride for now if you have the time.
