Plum, prune and leather aromas set up a lively palate with vibrant acidity. Plum, currant, vanilla and tobacco flavors form a classic Rioja mix, while vanilla, brown sugar and chocolate hints soften the finish.
Rated 90/100 The Wine EnthusiastIntense black-cherry colour with good depth of colour and hardly any signs of evolution. Very expressive aromas on the nose with notes of liquorice, cinnamon and black pepper, with just a subtle hint of the long cask-ageing, thanks to its great complexity and ripe, concentrated fruit. Fresh and easy to drink on the palate, good backbone and lovely, polished tannins. The long, persistent finish leaves gentle balsamic reminders of the finest quality
