Ripe and round, with blackberry and bacon aromas. Quite modern and full for a 2002, one of Rioja’s most challenging vintages in a while. Shows full berry flavors with ample oak and a touch of tannin. Finishes with mocha and spice.
Sort of heavy and herbal, with plenty of mint, beet and sweet plum flavors. Seems on the verge of overripe; the oak takes it to chocolate and coffee before a meaty finish. Imported by Quality Wines of Spain.
