The grapes come from plots in and surrounding Haro. This was from an excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
Bright, and maroon in colour, this wine has aromas of ripe fruit such as blackberry, plum, and a touch of cherry as well as aromatic herbs like rosemary. There is the marked presence of barrel. It has notes of biscuit and turrón mixed with coffee and cocoa, with a hint of leather. In mouth, it is long, persistent and voluminous, with the presence of acidity and tamed tannin.
