    February 17, 2017 - Very nice. Excellent fruits and gentle tannin. Nice balance all around. Nicely aged - do not feel it is past prime yet.

    November 10, 2016 - Russk. Great old Rioja AmOak nose. Really juicy mouth. Less acid than the 2006, but still more acid than other LRA bottlings. Maybe this Vineyard is at a higher altitude. 91-

    October 6, 2016 - Sour fruit on nose. Classic Rioja, but feels a bit past best for my liking.
