Outer quote mark Restrained, mineral style with elegant tannins. Youthful and fresh, feminine and complex. Deliciously decadent, with extraordinary vitality in the palate and a long unique, finish. A jewel at this price. *Decanter Wine of the Year 2013* Inner quote mark (1/2014)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark (aged for 26 months in new and used French and American oak barrels) Vivid, faded red color. A highly complex bouquet evokes dried red fruits, candied rose, coconut, pipe tobacco and mocha, with hints of smoked meat and baking spices emerging as the wine opens up. Classic, old school Rioja and fully mature, offering bitter cherry, blood orange, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that turn sweeter on the back half. Finishes smooth, spicy and very long, with no apparent tannins and resonating floral and tobacco notes. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2019)
