88 Points

Saturday, August 8, 2009 - A beautiful perfumy, black cherry and spice nose.
Good acids, balance, and intensity in the mouth with some kind of orange and foresty qualities joining the cherries, but the finish is lacking and it isn't particularly silky as far as mouth feel.
Those last two qualities might improve with more age, but I'm not sure. I'm rather inexperienced with Rioja.
