"Saturated ruby. Lively, spice-tinged cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by an emerging floral overtone. Pliant and well-concentrated, offering juicy black currant and bitter cherry flavors and a sweetening vanilla flourish. Supple tannins lend shape to a long, spicy finish that echoes the cherry and floral notes." - Josh Raynolds
TASTING NOTES |
Bright raspberry and cherry aromas highlight this medium-bodied, classic style Rioja. These red fruit flavors carry over to the palate, picking up smoky and tobacco notes in addition to vanilla accents. The wine is smooth and generous, finding balance between sweet and bitter, plush and structured.
