Even after more than 10 years of aging, this wine had the structure to age even longer before reaching its prime. After two hours, this wine was hitting its peak, with rich black berries and dark plums up front. A mid-palate of cedar shavings and hints of vanilla gave way to softening tannins on the finish.
Bright ruby color turning violet at the rim with a nose of red and black fruits, vanilla, smoke and cola. The palate is bold, dry, full-bodied with a silky texture. Flavors of red cherry, currant, tobacco, dark chocolate and licorice form the core that's sharply intense that shoots through with a long, sustained finish with hints of grilled meat, dried herbs, and sweet tannins. This is traditional Rioja at its best. Drink now with 30 minutes decant until 2030.
