Such a beautiful wine...red ripe/dried cherries, blackcherry, soy sauce, leather, smooth tannins, with perfect acid balance and the elegant vanilla and dill to round it out...

Deep red, cedar chest meets old jacket smell, full bodied, tannic, complex, woodsy, velvety. Reminded me of a Grandan wine.

This Spanish Rioja is just as good as the CADE cab I just had and is less than half the price, therefore it gets a perfect score. The difference is the rioja is a tad bit sweeter in the beginning and possesses less tannins in the finish. It also has a little more buttery middle. Everything else is almost identical!!! - Dr Todd Vineyards and Herron Family Wines

Lots of leathery almost sherry like aroma mixed with overripe cherries. I also get a bit of cedar wood and slight smokiness. Dense flavour with refined tannins, finishes with more leather.
