Macan Rioja Clásico Tinto 2012
Earthy, herbal black-fruit aromas include notes of pencil shavings and lemony oak. This is full in body, bulky and choppy, with hard, youthful tannins that could use some time to soften. Roasted flavors of blackberry, hickory and baked plum finish with heavy notes of chocolate, molasses and brown sugar. Drink this ripe, meaty Rioja from 2017 through 2025.
This polished red delivers savory flavors of dried herb, graphite and loamy earth framing muted plum and bitter chocolate flavors. Harmonious, with some depth. Drink now through 2020. 167 cases imported.
