Ripe fruits meets baking spices with a dry finish. #22 on the Wine Spectator list.
Clean, bright dark-cherry red of medium depth with a pink rim. Notably expressive nose with spicy notes of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and cloves and fine wood aromas against a background of ripe dark fruit. It is a well-structured, balanced wine with a lively, enticing freshness that combines with polished tannins to fill the mouth with pleasurable sensations. Long aftertaste, marked by the subtlety of a brand whose traditional elegance, complexity and aromatic power are particularly enriched in this vintage.
This producer, La Rioja Alta, actually has two wineries so they can choose the right winery to make the right wine, one is more traditional and one is more modern.
