92/100 – Bob Campbell MW
“Classy and rather elegant Rioja with ripe plum, blackcurrant, old leather and roasted chestnut flavours supported by a backbone of fine, ripe tannins. Accessible now but with obvious cellaring potential. Drink 2022 to 2027.” – Bob Campbell MW
Tasting Note: Made from Tempranillo grapes, native from Rioja located in the north of Spain. 6 months fermentation in old French oak. This is a well-balanced wine, driven by red fruit with spicy and earthy notes on the nose. Ripe tannins, savoury and mineral hints with a pleasant cocoa finish.
Region: La Rioja, Spain
