Simple Rioja with nice fruit and balance. A real bargain.

This is just a fantastic wine, and my half-bottle was drinking really well already. There is such superb depth of flavor (dried red and black fruits) with notes of autumn leaves, yet the wine is lithe, and as Tanzer says (and I agree), almost weightless. I will hang onto my second bottle for a good while to see the difference some extra years of aging make — but may pick up a full-sized bottle too as I liked it so much. One of the best stories, and estates, in wine for sure.

    Rioja this is on the
