    May 15, 2019 - Dark ruby, medium body. Nose of plum, cigar box and cinnamon. Tastes of dark cherry, pomegranate, cocoa, leather and cinnamon. Fine tannins. This may be at or near peak, but it will last quite a while, I think. Complex and lovely, really as good as Rioja gets IMO.

    May 9, 2019 - 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano

    Medium to full body, mature ruby color. Intense aroma of red fruits, cinnamon and cigar box. The palate is dried cherry complements by milk chocolate, cedar wood, spices and lingering juicy finish. Rich, complex and rounding but fresh with silky structure, good balance between natural berries acidity and completely integrated tannins. Food friendly, tasted with carpaccio and lamb ribs stewed with carrot and spices. Open about three hours ahead. Serve 17º - 22º. Late mature and won’t develop more, drink now and three/four years.

    April 21, 2019 - Exceptional stuff... paired wonderfully with smoked lamb ribs with a light herb rub and cherry wood smoke for Easter Supper. Oaked cherry flavors and smokey after tones paired great. integrated tannins and mild traces of acidity make me think this beauty is in its prime drinking window.

    March 17, 2019 - Superb. Gave this 5 hour decant and still got better as night went on. Out of a magnum. Has fruit and acidity to cellar much longer.

    Really nice smooth finish. Not yet into the barnyard funk that I like in an old rioja.

    Will sit on my remaining magnums for 10 years.
