Intense cherry-red with brick hues. Clean, powerfularomas on the nose, with harmony between the oak ageing and vinous notes. Wide structure in the mouth; tasty and full-bodied. Polished, gentle tannins. Its aromas continue on the finish, which is long and persistent. Well-developed and mature, with an assured long life in bottle.
Dark red. Funky, herb-accented aromas of dried red fruits and flowers, along with a hint of leather. Supple and sweet, with a light touch to the spicy raspberry and cherry flavors. The soft finish leaves notes of fennel and rose pastille behind. Textbook traditional Rioja that's ready to drink. - Stephen Tanzer
