Drank 3/4/29. Nice pairing with a seared pork chop .

Smokey red and black cherry on the nose. Cherry, vanilla, and wood presence on the palate, with notes of soil and medium + tannins. The wood and soil notes go on for a while, but the fruit fades rather quickly on the finish. This did improve a bit as it warmed. Preferred at around 76 degrees.

3/21/7/3/4 +50 = 88 pts.

Very flat to me. Definitely not just a wine to sip on. Would be great with flavorful foods! Let this one sit open for a while.

Easy drinking, smokey, red fruit, cherry, wood. Definitely let it rest for a few years.

After seven years, There’s still a tannin bite but it fits well with the rich flavors and full aroma. It’s how a Rioja should be, deep and tasteful.

Let it air for at least an hour before drinking. The flavors change dramatically with time, and are quite tasty
