100% Tempranillo aged 17 months in fine grained French oak. Highly polished, tightly wound and elegant wine with refined aromatics. Fine tannins provide a silky texture, leading to a persistent finish of red berries and sweet oak. Blossoms both in body and flavor with decantation and will age gracefully for years, in the manner of top Burgundy.
A powerful and rich, maturing Rioja with an elegant balance of polished tannins and lively blackberries and blueberries. If the fresh finish was a bit longer, this would rate even higher. Drink or hold. - James Suckling 92 Points
