    November 23, 2021 - For the price of a good village Burgundy you get a complex aged Rioja slightly old school but not worse for this. Coconut and toffee on the nose with rounded tanins and silky sweet palate with great length. Perfect drinking at the moment.

    November 20, 2021 - This needed air, it’s smokey and a bit chunky to start, improved over time but you need to decant this a while in advance to enjoy it fully

    November 16, 2021 - This is far more dry and lighter than current La Rioja Alta.

    Old school.

    I expect there is bottle variation.

    Drink now.

    12.5%, cork.

    November 12, 2021 - An elegant and seductive mature Rioja, with great acidity. But the coconut and caramel aromas are overwhelming.
