    May 20, 2019 - High acidity dominates at this stage, including on Day 2. Hold until 2021 at the earliest.

    May 10, 2019 - Nice nose, complex fruits and spice. A touch of classy vanilla and balsamic nuances; oak shows more markedly on the palate, in fact its the main characteristic. Good weight of fruit here, but the oak is troubling for my tastes. Tannic, a touch drying.

    May 5, 2019 - Cherries, red berries, pomegranate, and vanilla on the nose. Medium+ tannins, good acidity, and flavors of red cherries, herbs, and tart plum on the palate. Good finish. This needs more time, try again in 5 years...

    April 3, 2019 - Rose petals and warm herbs drift atop a bed of dusty red fruit and worn leather. Sneaky tannins break through in the mid-palate, to remind me that thirteen is still so early for an LdH Rioja. Time and patience are allies.
