Medium-bodied, lush tannins, good complexity with strawberry, plum, tobacco leaf, cigar, and resiny oak notes. Good length and complexity.

The prevalent fruit characteristics of the Crianza have drifted away, making room for a musty funkiness. This funk is typical of aged wines and especially old world wines. The finish wasn't nearly as long but very very dry.

Phenomenal Rioja, whispers of the Spanish summer winds, rich fruit, wonderful oak character, I could drink this wine every day. I <3 Tempranillo.

The reserve is supposed to be better but I can't remember a huge difference. Also a great wine.

아주 터프하고 향도 강렬해서 소고기와 아주 잘 어울릴 것 같다.

Had a glass > bottle. More acidic than I'd liked, but certainly rich in intensity.

Super amazing red. Full bodied, with nice tanins and spice and a wonderful oak aroma.

Needed to open up some but really came together after a little breather. Some currant and cranberry with subtle spice and a hint of pipe tobacco. Medium bodied with a gentle tannin structure. Balanced with a moderate finish. Pleasant all around and a very good QPR.

2008 - stewed red cherries and overripe strawberries and only the beginning on this full bouquet; leather, spice, and tobacco follow. Flavors of black cherry, black cassis, and the seeds of fruits are strengthened with firm tannins and a long finish.
