2001 Rioja wines tasting (Yagil's home): dark translucent red-purple with brown tones present nose of rich dark mature fruits (plums) with earthy and tobacco-spicy notes firm tannins on the palate, good acidity level, fairly structured and complexed, intense cherries, plums, some jammy tones, earthy-dusty character, savoury and light spicy association, cedar aroma, leathery and chewy aftertaste. Bottom line: very classic Rioja-for-food wine.
