Dark red color, very funky nose to start, was worried about a flaw. Then definitely resolved, dusty red fruit nose. Plum/tomato, leather, graphite on the palate, not too long a finish. Does have tannins left, might last another 3-5 years.
Translucent crimson. Nose of oak, fruit and spice. Dark cherry and blueberry fruit with the oak showing only in the background. Medium texture and nicely balanced tannins and acidity. A little plusher than many but still a classic Rioja. Definitely in a prime drinking window. Only 13% alcohol and food friendly. We loved it with our Pasta alla Puttanesca. Excelente.
