Really well made, I did not enjoy the 11 as much as I loved this one. Ripe cherries wrapped in tobacco and local spices (rosemary, fennel). Great tannins and length. Congrats (a competitor to Roda, my homeground, and a good solid one).

coconut notes in the nose, beautiful in the palate, dark fruits, hint of cooking herbs, the sweetness of the coconut contrast with the garlic in the escalivada

Bright ruby red color. The bouquet was very clean, ripe red fruit with a slightly floral/spice aroma. The taste was traditional for a Rioja, as the wine is a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo, and Graciano. On the palate, the wine was complex with layers of fresh ripe berry flavors, slight spicy/smoky oak with neat silky tannins together with a mineral finish. Well balanced wine at a fantastic price. An exceptional offering and should not be missed. Tasting Sample.

86 темпранильо, 8 гарнача, 4 масуэло, 2 грасиано. Достаточно интенсивный аромат олдскула: немного рансьо, сухофрукт, пряности, но при этом проглядывают и тона свежих ягод.хороший баланс с тоном рансьо и во вкусе
