It's good to see Rioja's largest winery making wines of this quality in substantial quantities. Made from Tempranillo with 10% of Graciano and Mazuelo for structure and backbone and aged in a combination of French and American oak, supple strawberry and raspberry fruit and balancing acidity. 2019 24
Ruby red color with a golden rim. Bright and deep. Complex aromas. There is a great balance between the fruit (cherries, black plums, ripe blackberries) and the clean nuances of the wood (clove, pepper, vanilla and coconut). The nose is further enriched by the aromas that develop during bottle ageing. Smooth and balanced on the palate with a full, elegant feel and a long, lingering finish.
