Oscar Tobía Seleccion de Autor Rioja 2015
90 Points - Vinous
90 Points - Decanter
Brilliant and clear aspect. Cherry red color with intense burgundy trims. Complex, intense and clean aroma. Firstly, black fruits (raisins prunes, blackberries) come up, blended with notes of spices like black pepper and nutmeg Over a backdrop of aromatic herbs like eucalyptus.
"(Raised in new and used French and American oak barrels for 18 months) Inky ruby. Ripe dark fruit preserve, licorice, cola and mocha scents, with vanilla and succulent herb notes in the background. Offers appealingly sweet, vaguely jammy black and blue fruit flavors that show good depth and a hint of spicy cracked pepper on the back half. Finishes on a gently tannic note, with repeating spice and vanilla qualities and good tenacity." – J.R.
