Smooth, a little juicy, a little smoky - a great value for all that this wine from Rioja has to offer. With soft, integrated tannins, I'm sure it will please most. I had to buy a bottle for myself!

Another beautiful Spanish Rioja made with 100% Tempranillo, where the wine is aged for you, and is ready to enjoy. This wine opens up with aromas of blueberry, black fruit, dried flowers, spice box and smoky. On the mouthfeel, medium-full bodied with alcohol at 13.5%, excellent depth of flavour, low acidity and smooth and well integrated tannins. Medium length on the finish with savoury fruit, soft cedar notes and very smooth texture. Strongly recommended and not to be missed for fans of Spanish Rioja, enjoyed in May 2012.
