    December 25, 2019 - Opened 2.5 hours before serving. Blackberries, plum, forest floor, allspice, leather. Awesome wine that’s super balanced.

    December 16, 2019 - This wine is singing right now. Decanted for a couple of hours at Hawksmoor on a £5 corkage special. Delicious Rioja with just the right amount of oak. Long silky finish. Lovely drop. In it's drinking window for sure but no hurry at all..

    December 8, 2019 - PNP - at restaurant so did not take notes. This has aged extremely well and while in it's drinking window, should have years of life left - dark black color with ever so slight meniscus and fine sediment. Good complexity (black fruits / earth/ dill / tobacco) on nose / palate. 93+

    November 24, 2019 - Just delicious, full of spice and fruit. Very fine tannin, good acidity, big texture, all in very good balance. A pleasure to drink.

    October 29, 2019 - Nicely balanced moderately plush fruit and acidity. The acidity is actually quite high. This is medium body and alcohol. Sour cherry, as well as notes of more generous ripe cherry. Not as much ripe fruit as I expected. To me this is still a fairly modern expression of Rioja - there are no notes of oxidation. Tannin still grippy. Overall impression is of a youthful wine. long finish and some complexity. I would score it higher but personally don't like the sour notes - Burgundy lovers will adore it!
