Description: This Rioja red comes in a dense and quite dark red colour, black to the core without being overly black, bright red to the rim. The nose is lively and fragrant, filled with fresh berry notes of raspberry, as well as ripe if not cooked fruit aromas like strawberry jam. It’s somewhat restrained although open and expressive at the same time. Perhaps because it’s packed with spices like clove, toasted notes of dark cocoa and coffee, vanilla and a mineral ashy feel to the smell. The palate is medium-bodied, with good balance and acidity. Not a lot of tannins, but they’re very soft. Plenty of sweet spices flavours complements the red berry characters well for an overall fruity/savoury feel that is composed, expressive and enjoyable.
