    July 15, 2021 - Classic vs. Modern Rioja Masterclass w/ Pomeroy MW (The Wine Sellar and Brassiere): An impressive modern-styled Rioja that is as deep in color as it is in intensity. 18 months of new French Oak aging imparts a heavy dose of spice and espresso on top of the thick black fruits, herbal, and earthy flavors. Concentrated, chewy tannins are bit much right now. So, no reason to drink this any time soon.

    March 13, 2021 - Too young (as expected).

    Deep red, almost purple. Velvety. Black fruit, spice, vanilla, earth. Perhaps the darkest Rioja I've come across. Very modern style; not traditional.

    Impressive in terms of a modern Rioja style, but I tend to prefer more traditional riojas.

    February 21, 2021 - WAY TOO EARLY

    Big, bold, berry and alcohol intense due to being drunk too young.

    I will wait at least 5-7 years to try again.

    will be great.

    October 22, 2020 - 2 hour decant. Zoom wine meeting Tempranillo.
    As it slowly opened it improved. Initially too tannic
    This could be really good. Eventually.
