    February 9, 2020 - Fresh fruity nose. Palate - bubble gummy, slightly dry, liquorice. Finish - medium, lingering.

    February 1, 2020 - Forgot to write a note at the time, however this was a very pleasurable wine. I have 07s and 08s too but the 09s are the best of the three vintages from my perspective. Very easy to drink, balanced, good fruit flavours from memory.

    January 26, 2020 - This is a perennial favourite of mine. It’s light and ethereal on the tongue and is so fabulously integrated that it challenges you not to descend into descriptions of roses, cedar, raspberries or what have you. It’s seamless. The alcohol is light. While not a deep or particularly complex wine it gives great pleasure to drink.

    January 19, 2020 - Served at large dinner at a friend's house. Did not decant. No extensive notes.

    This is continues to be an outstanding Rioja for the price. I think it is one of the best buys in the marketplace.

    January 14, 2020 - Attractive and complex nose of currants and sweet oak.
    Mild and fully mature, very nice concentration and balance, hidden alcohol and acidity. Drinking alone gives pleasure but will work with food. Excellent.
