Nicely mature and powerful Rioja with distinctive vanilla bouquet and secondary flavours on the long palate. Very good.

Holy oak!! Massive oak and vanilla on the nose and throughout the palate. Was balanced at times but also had some heat, which was surprising as it’s listed at 13.5% OH. I enjoyed it @ £26!
