This is a mature, old school nutty, marzipan, lactic/yoghurt-like and resinous red with oak dominating the fruit....

Medium+ ruby to garnet in colour with a medium+ intense nose.

Old style Rioja, rustic, oaked & leathery

Positives: This wine features oak, dry cherries, plums, red currants, raspberry, cocoa, cinnamon, Allspice, woodsmoke, leather and tobacco leaf. Medium body with dry tannins, good acidity and a long length

Negatives: A little on the expensive side for reserva

Interesting Point: Grapes come from 60 year old vines.

Drink now or in the next 3 years on its own or and pair it with aged meat.

Tasted: 4 July 2014

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 8/10, Total: 18+/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5+
