So good. These old Riojas are speaking to me these days. Vegetable garden, cigar, dried fruit. Young and old at the same time, which I saw as another review. So good. A fantastic solo dining companion.

Cigar box and dead leaves for days. Youthful yet old at the same time. Beautiful.

Still drinking young and fresh. Bright cherry nose with a hint of char and barnyard funk. On the palate cherry, cranberry, and red fruit starts with spice, black tea, cocoa, tobacco, and leather kicking in mid-palate supported by a mineral backbone. Strong acid builds through the finish. A fabulous medium bodied red with the roundness and smoothness of age that still retains the brilliance of a young crianza.
