Cata de contino con Jesus Madrazo, todavía muy joven y con los terciarios sin redondear, la madera todavía se come a la fruta...

Oak overload!

Very average Rioja Reserva for £25 that's nothing memorable other than a LOT of oak, but it's OK. I'd buy a Faustino 1 for £19 or Marques de Murrieta for £17 👍 @ £28 Marques de Riscal Gran Reserva better 😉

🍷 Clear ruby

👃 Rich charred oak & sweet cedar through young sweet dark cherry

👄 Med body of dark cherry & sweet blackcurrant w/ a wallop of tongue drying oak

🎯 Med+ sweet dark fruits lead with dark scorched chewy oaky chalky cherry
