“Layers of chocolate, brambles, fine oak, cedar and vanilla make up the palate. Wonderful old-fashioned Rioja that is a bit developed but is classic and classy and sings of freshness.” 92 points, Decanter Magazine, August 2015

Alcohol Volume: 13.5%

Tasting Notes: Medium-intensity, dark cherry-red; clean and bright. To the nose it stands out for its fresh, spicy character, with hints of sweet cherries and blackcurrant chocolate, assembled with notes of black pepper, tobacco, nutmeg, coffee, mocha and cinnamon. Pleasant and well-balanced in the mouth. Tasty, with a soft freshness, nice structure, and delicately elegant tannins. Silky finish, with a lovely aftertaste, where liqueur-like notes of cherries and blackcurrants intermingle with toasty notes and sweet spices
