    December 6, 2013 - Solid, traditional profile, some dusty, grippy cherry, darkish overall, moderate American oak influence, shows best in the finish, which seems promising

    October 27, 2013 - Tart sweet dried red cherry with with grippy, oaky tannins. A medium long finish. Undoubtedly Spanish and a wine best served with food, but unlike most young Riojas, this was better as a pop and pour on day one than days 2-3 because the fruit counters the acid and oak/tannins. I guess too much oak my palate. 13.5% abv.

    August 31, 2013 - Doftar mörka röda bär (körsbär), svarta oliver, kryddiga fat, ceder, torkade örter, pepparmynta och mörk fet skifferlik mineralitet. I munnen är det fin, ren, frisk frukt och en hel del fat, men känns ändå balanserat.

    Spännande och gott. Saknar de stereotypa Riojamarkörerna (vanilj, dill). För mig liknade detta lite mer Priorat.

    March 24, 2013 - I expect Rioja to be oaky but this was a bit much. Fruit was fresh and seems to be good but it was hard to tell.

    January 29, 2013 - Smooth, rich Italian. Very nice with Scottish food.
