    July 15, 2019 - Strawberry on the nose; on the palate, currant, cherry, and plum, with notes of leather and tobacco, with light to moderate tannins and strong acidity on the medium to long finish. This is early in its drinking window, and should improve for several years. This was a good value at a little under $60.

    April 1, 2019 - beautiful traditional Rioja. Despite of drinking nicely already, has plenty of drinking window left.

    December 14, 2018 - From Mag- popped and poured, although I would have preferred a long decant, this was immediately drinkable, full bodied, rounded well balanced fruit with no weak spots and a nice finish. Certainly a crowd pleaser that isn’t even in its prime and will last two decades easily. If you have a few, no need to wait. Quite enjoyable now.

    November 25, 2018 - Nice fully matured (ruby with lighter edges) and rounded. At first, it seems somewhat simple with aromas of red cherry and hints of herbs and taste of ripe cherry. But changes/improves in the glass developing notes of "black" fruits like plumb and fig.
