Intense, dark-cherry red; bright. Very pronounced aromas; fruity, with outstanding notes of spices and new wood. Robust in the mouth, with a vinous personality. Pleasantly tannic, with a harmonious and very persistent finish.
All of our tasters took great pleasure in tasting this harmonious, balanced Rioja, one taster going so far as to say it was the purest fruit in a wine of its category that he could recall. An intense, cherry-red colored wine, which has pronounced aromas of orange peel and dried fruit, along with spicy notes from 18 months in new American oak. A robust and fruity wine with pleasing tannins and a long, well-balanced finish. Made from 80% Tempranillo, 15% Mazuelo and 5% Graciano grapes.
