    November 11, 2017 - Oaky but in a good way. Cherry and spice. Nice acidity. Paired well with pheasant with celery root and consume with black truffle. Very long finish.

    October 28, 2017 - Glass: Gabriel Standard
    One glass poured with Coravin.
    Clear, medium-deep, ruby-garnet color. Clean, medium+ intense, developing nose with a wonderful Rioja perfume: Intense secondary/tertiary aromas of Animal nose (horse), leather, tobacco, spices and fine oak. In the background a solid foundation of red fruit (cherries?). Could smell there forever…
    Bone dry, medium+/high acidity, that gives this wine freshness and a good structure, but maybe is a slight bit too high. Medium+, very fine and ripe tannin. Medium alcohol and body. Medium+ intense, complex and classic Rioja flavors: Cherries and other berries, tobacco, very fine oak, mineral notes, spices. Very balanced with a great structure. Silky and velvet on the palate. Long and lingering finish. Guess it starts slowly reaching its peak where it will stay for at least a decade. 92-94. Fantastic PQR!!!

    October 16, 2017 - Beautiful wine. The nose really grabs your attention with its power and complexity. To taste, it is quite elegant red fruits, some oak, beautifully balanced and very very long. Drinking well now but fresh as daisy, suggesting some life ahead.

    October 7, 2017 - Very good, drank alongside the 2001 Reserva Especial and this was better, both had a lovely sweet vanilla nose, caramel, fruit and the palate was delicious and had a complex finish of sweet fruit, round tannins and a depth that went on for some time. This has years ahead of it. 92 points
