Community Tasting Notes 5

    August 1, 2011 - Compared against Crianza Glorioso from Bodegas Palacio 2005 - Youthful looking, ruby with medium intensity. Overpowering vanilla on the nose (American oak) + sweetness (cherry jam). Full bodied, nice tannins, medium to high acidity, buttery/meaty.Slightly imbalanced (overoaked, and feels quite alcoholic). Medium to long finish. Good value for money, can age a year or two with no problem.

    December 12, 2010 - Good balance overall, but slightly overoaked - wait a couple of years to sample again

    April 4, 2009 - Dark ruby red. Red fruits dominant in nose, with mold, lots of pepper and a hint of oak. Balanced in mouth, quite round tannins and acidity. Nice finish. I found it more fruity and less oaky than a standard Rioja.

    February 28, 2009 - A bit less agressive than I'd expected. More refinement than punch. Very nickely blanced.
