A blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano, aged for 20 months in oak. Deep Ruby with aromas of black fruits and sweet spices. On the palate ripe blackberry and currant flavors with vanilla spice. Medium finish with very grippy bitting tannins, ending with fruit, oak and spice character. Ok for price. Drink now!

Very warm and well-rounded, but dry and somewhat tannic, with black cherry, Rioja Reserva, with spicy tobacco finish, at Barcelona in the South End, Boston

Dark red with aromas of dark berries and complex spice. On the palate ripe blackberry and black cherry with notes of savory vanilla, espresso and cacao. Very soft and smooth tannins on an unending lingering finish with fruit and spice, very pleasant. Wow! Nice! Will continue to age well.

Massive fruit smell ... can smell it even if the glass is a foot away from my nose. Smells of cherries, plum jam. Sweet fruit taste ... again the cherries ... followed by a few sour notes.
