Moderate alcohol and healthy acidity that feels balsamic with more depth. Quite oaky and spicy in a hedonistic, heady way. The fruit is ripe and voluptuous, and the palate shows resolved tannins and clean flavors. This is perfect for current drinking, a clean, updated classic Rioja that should also evolve nicely in bottle.
100% Tempranillo from 50 year old vines. Aged 22 months in new French oak and then 18 months in bottle before release.
