Aged in French oak for ten months in French oak. Vivid purple. Smoky blackcurrant, cherry and violet aromas show very good clarity and zesty mineral lift. Juicy and focused on the palate, with the bitter cherry and dark berry flavors becoming sweeter with air. Smoothly combines power and finesse, finishing with strong punch, sneaky tannins and lingering berry and floral qualities. Delivers outstanding value, especially for a difficult vintage.
“It is not easy to find Riojas this well made at this price point, as most of them are at least twice this pricing.” - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
