From the Label:

“Made from selected Tempranillo grapes from our best vineyards. After a temperature controlled fermentation, 24 months aging in American and French oak barrels and a final process of bottle maturation in our cellars, we attain this fine and balanced wine. Bright cherry red in colour. Displays a deep complexity of ripe red fruits, spices, tobacco and liquorice very well balanced. Warm, complex, powerful and elegant in the palate with a long and velvety aftertaste. Ideal to serve with all types of meat dishes, stews and matured cheese.”

My Home Bistro Review

He said… “This Rioja has a well-rounded flavour with blackberries present in the initial taste together with a little oakiness which is joined by a spiciness. Offers a good mixed fruit flavour on the top of the mouth. Good to drink on its own or with food.” 8/10

She said… “A really good balanced Rioja with deep blackberry and oak flavours on the initial sip with a smoothness that follows. It has an enjoyable aftertaste and is good on its own or with a meal. I like it!” 8.5/10
