    January 31, 2019 - The tannins are fully integrated now and it’s interesting if not all that distinctive. Although it is a modern style Rioja, there’s no sense of excessive oak or extraction. There’s savory secondary notes of smoke, chestnut and rhubarb. I like it - but I don’t love it.

    April 25, 2018 - Has softened up/matured significantly since I last tasted and now becoming a most attractive wine, very Spanish if that makes sense.

    November 4, 2017 - 14% alcohol. Luxurious bottle including sophisticated security features (engraved number on the bottle, holographic back label). Good long cork with no wine penetration. Decanted for an hour.
    Deep colour with no sign of evolution. The nose is discreet but elegant, and it is mercifully free of American oak. The mouth is more assertive, very juicy and fruity (cherry) in a slightly high-pitched way. No harsh tannins, but no lack of structure either. There is a slightly rustic quality, but not in a bad way at all.
    An interesting wine, and maybe my first true encounter with Tempranillo, given that in my experience most Rioja is hopelessly compromised by overwhelming doses of American oak, leaving you to wonder what exactly the producer is trying to hide under the make-up.
    To be revisited in five years or so, to see if the wine develops the depth that is somewhat elusive at the moment. This will certainly last fifteen years at least.
    Note to self: do not pair with lamb the next time.
    In terms of repurchasing, I cannot say that this wine justifies its hefty price tag at the moment (50-70€ from what I can see on the web, about twice what I paid several years ago).

    December 3, 2016 - Drinking well right now. Ripe black cherries, vanilla, cigar box and a bit of anise. Medium finish.

    August 23, 2015 - Nice nose of red fruits, spice and tobacco. Fruits really come out on the palate with a long finish. I think this is ready to drink. Very enjoyable at this stage.
