Surprising colour, dark garnet, of high layer, deep. On the nose, we appreciate its big aromatic diversity. Very intense, dominating the red fresh fruit (cherry, plum, blackberry, cranberry), melted with the toasted spice and sweet notes of the wood. Great power and concentration on the palate. It is fresh, fragrant, appearing at once fleshy and softly tannic. Its final ending is silky, greasy. We recover the toasty, chocolate, strawberry red and the elegance of the mineral.
Great everyday red. Good body but not heavy and not overly tannic.
A good summer wine. Not a whole lot of body or flavor
We both Love this! Very smooth, easy drinking.
Earthy and deep. Smooth tannins. Nice rioja!
Smooth, red berries

Complex aromas of cherry, raspberry and spice. Full-bodied palate with intense rich oak and chocolate flavours. Drink up to 2008. £8.99
