This wine shows shades of medium to deep shiny cherry colour. To the nose, intense aromas of ripe fruits (blackberries, blackcurrants) stand out, complemented with subtle hints of oak, vanilla and spices aromas.
To the palate, it shows structured and round with a good integration of fruitiness and oakiness. The aftertaste is marked by very well balanced tannins as well as by persistent spicy, toasty and balsamic aromas. A long stay in bottle is the finishing touch to this Rioja Alavesa wine's character.
Wine SpectatorLeafy and spicy notes frame cherry, licorice and orange peel flavors in this juicy red. The structure is modest but balanced. The wine is harmonious, in the traditional style. Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo.
