An engaging spicy nose should pull you into a berry-delicious (blue, ras & straw) first blush that's tannic/acid creates a coating, clinging downstream flow that leisurely works the banks and turns then plunges into a clean freefall urging yet another swig... PS Bin 54 is rather perfect😎

Fruitier than the Imperial Reserva with less oak influence.
Medium bodied, but with excellent acidity and freshness. A slightly reduced nose but the palate shows well the cherry, plum, cranberry, cinnamon, and iron.

Good intensity on the nose with a fair complexity. In the mouth well balanced with refined tannins and a long length. Silky texture

Needed lots of time to open. Once it did WOW yummy . Nice dry oaky finish . Wet on the palate. Black licorice , coffee . Stands up so well with strong flavours in Foods

Beautiful fruit and spice overlaid by game and eucalyptus coming from age and barrel. Great length and spice spice spice on the palate with a taste of herbs. it was perhaps not as elegant as I would have hoped but it is a bold great rioja.
