Great Rioja Reserva! The Grenache and prominence of new American oak are the highlight. Aromas of toasted almond, soft leather and summer plum. Pomegranate, late summer cherry and spice on the palate with a hint of brown spice. Tannins are soft. Best if you’re looking for a white meat pairing as it seems like about 30-50% garnache. Nice little break from all the Tempranillo tannins

One of the best Rioja values, old school with the right barrel taste.
