This is amazing traditional Rioja with a complexity and beauty of ripe fruit and long aging. Unique. Full body, ultra-fine tannins, tobacco, vanilla, plums & prunes. It lasts for minutes on the palate... All from high altitude vineyards.
The nose is intoxicating with a superb mixture of tertiary & more primary aromas... with great freshness, acidity and balance, with a silky texture, ultra-fine tannins and great persistence and length.... Superb!
The dense texture carries harmonious flavors of plum, tobacco, licorice, mineral and smoke in this polished red. Well-integrated tannins and orange peel acidity keep this balanced. The floral, spicy finish brings you back for another sip.
