Winemaker Notes

The wine shows beautiful, violet tinged ruby color. There are persistent aromas and flavors of blackberry and licorice-typical of the Tempranillo grape-as well as subtle vanilla spice from its aging in oak from Allier. The concentrated, complex body shows great balance and length, giving way to a persistent, flavorful finish.

Critical Acclaim

ST 88
International Wine Cellar

Ruby-red. Cherry-vanilla, cola and oak spices on the nose. Smooth, sweet and fleshy, offering lush dark berry and cherry compote flavors and a strong vanilla undertone. Old-school Rioja, showing a lot of sweet, spicy oak that I hope will be integrated with a few more years of bottle age.88(+?) points.
