Wunderbar klassischer Rioja mit typischer Handschrift. Feines Bukett dominiert von Tabak- Vanille und Kokosnoten von amerikanischem Holz. Kirsch- und Heidelbeerfrucht. Schöne Säurestruktur und gut eingebundenes Tannin. Mittlerer Körper, schönes Finish. Elegant, klassisch. Toller Rioja.
Opaque red-garnet in color, this wine (a blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha, both aged in American oak) shows nice aromas of cassis, pipe tobacco, dark chocolate and eucalyptus. Full-bodied on the palate and with enamel-stripping acidity, it incorporates black fruit, tobacco and spice flavors in a tart frame with nicely integrated, medium-weight tannins. The alcohol (listed as 13%) is a non-issue and the middle palate is solid. Long and acerbic on the finish, this is a wine which is simply too acidic but otherwise delightful. Do not consume it without food! Drink now-2020.
Priorat, Montsant and Rioja; 9/5/2014-9/18/2014: From 75cl, P+P at the winery. Clear American oak and bright red fruit scent; sour cherry and cranberry entry; squeaky texture on the mid-palate. 13% alc. Straightforward, fresh, linear, good. 87-88P
