8.0

Lightly corked. Deep, inky red with loads of spice and mushrooms, cherry and black pepper. Substantial tannins are counterweighted with loads of acidity and spicy berries. A pity it was compromised. 13.5% abv. Note: Delectable won't allow me to submit this textual review without applying a numerical rating. I don't like to apply ratings to flawed wines, but must do so. A Delectable feature enhancement, perhaps?

Probably the best of the three of these I’ve had. Very accessible, and lots of tobacco and earth with dark fruit. Definitely a good time to drink this.

Older Rioja. A little smokey. Slight taste of prunes and raisins. Dark fruit.

Enjoying with gorgeous Iberian Ham, Catalan bread & an awesome cheese selection 😍 so Quick notes 😁

Great now but will benefit from more age 👍

🍷 Garnet opaque ruby w/ brown edge

👃 Earthy ripe red & dark smoked cherry w/ oak, cocoa, thick balsamic & touch of vanilla

👄 Med body of fruit loaded cherry bomb w/ balsamic & mocha tones

🎯 Med+ cherry balsamic mocha kiss
