Ruby with complex fruit aromas, spice and oak. Blend of 90% Tempranillo & 10% Graciano, 48 mos on American oak. On the palate ripe Berry fruits, powerful yet elegant, with spice & smoky earthy notes on full tannins. Long finish, nice mouthfeel, ending with mineral earthy tones and cigar box spice, a joy to Sip!! Tasting great, has more aging potential, try in 10+ years! Great Value!

Sweet juicy cherries and dried prunes, spices on the nose; spicy on the palate, with good balance of acidity and tannins, thick with cherries and a bit of wood and vanilla. Long finish. Powerful wine.

This bottle is showing a lot more age than the same bottle I had 2 weeks ago. Lacks some of the finesse of the last one.

Was tight and needed at least an hour to begin to open, dried cherry, strawberry and good acid. Initially was high toned but as opened became very elegant and wish had more in the bottle when finished.

Medium ruby red. Layered nose with dried cherries, twigs, spices and forest floor. Medium tannins (6.5/10) and lots of acidity with a medium plus body. Well balanced even for being so young, notes of cherries, branches, strawberries and minerality. Long and lingering finish with solid acidity. Drink till 2033.

Ruby red with an elegant bouquet of berry fruits, subtle spice with fresh earthy tones, a traditional Rioja. On the palate, the wine was silky smooth with layers of flavors, berry/cherry, tobacco, smoky cedar, dark fruit, vanilla spice, very well balanced with fine tannins and a clean structure ending with a nice lingering finish. Delicious! Can age well, try this in 10 years.
