A beautiful & elegant Gran Reserva Rioja with mellowing potpourri aromas & emergent spice fruit flavors with further airing. This is a blalanced & complex, deeply satisfying & expressive representation of the unique Rioja Alta terroir. We recommend decanting this wine for 1 hour before enjoying it with Grilled Red Meats, Small game Partridge, Quail, or Wild Rabbits, Roast Duck or Pork, & Mature Cheeses such as Sharp Cheddar and Manchego Curado.
Made from 90% Tempranillo and a 10% blend of Graciano & Mazuelo grape varieties, this wine possesses a maroon colored robe. On the nose, aromas of ripe blackberry & plum are prevalent with added touches of cherry, & aromatic rosemary herbs. Evincing definite characters of barrel aging, this powerful Rioja manifests added coffee & cocoa notes along with vestiges of new leather. On the palate, it is long, persistent, & voluminous revealing a vibrant acid presence complemented by subtle, subdued tannins.
