Aeration makes a huge difference with this wine. Smooth, earthy and delicious.

Strong Tempranillo. Has the tannin structure to endure for years, but is a text book, classic Rioja. Recommend a single or double decant.

From magnum with homemade duck paella. You know, because we needed something less rich after Thanksgiving. Ever so slightly cloudy. Brilliant cherry aromas with a hint of leather/dried fruit. Noticeable bitterness in the finish.
Disclaimer: I import it.

Dark garnet color. Aroma of black cherries. Also tastes of dark cherry and blackberry. Some drying tannins that persist after swallowing. Long fruity aftertaste.

#catsandcrianza featuring a special guest Fenrir, a handsome 18lb. Maine Coon. This traditional Rioja is loaded with black cherry, lavender extract, dried clay and Earth, sweet herb, toasted marshmallow-chocolate s'mores. Kick butt wine in the Grapes of Spain set!
