From 80% tempranillo, 15% garnacha and 5% carignan (mazuelo) and graciano. Clear deep ruby color with brickorange hue; Complex elegant nose of herbs, dill, potpourri, oak, dried cherries and figs, and chocolate; mature taste with a bit of bitter almonds, dried mulberries, powdery tannins, medium acids and alcohol, prominent oak profile, and a long leathery finish. Perhaps some brett here.

Floral and juicy. Rustic but great structure.

Good but needs time. Better on day 2. Hold for now.

Outstanding. Unapologetically traditional. Smoother with 11 years of age, but not declining. Several layers to it, at turns distinct fruit, leather and some dust on the finish. Good rec by Lower Falls Wine Shop.

For a Rioja Reserva, this is light but certainly not delicate.

Fig, sour cherry, blackberry. It hits bigger toward its finish.

An all time classic winery. Great as always - savory forward with tobacco, vanilla, earth, tomato, with some supporting cherry and great acidity. An all time great Rioja - per always.
