John (89): A fine, traditionally styled, dusty-woody Rioja Reserva with abundant sandalwood and melted butter flavours from lavish American oak, meshed with bright red berries, fresh and tart. Tannins are light and fine-grained, though another year or two in the cellar with soften and surely amp up the overall complexity. Good to very good length. Tasted March 2016.
