Opens with alluring, classic aromas of spice, cinnamon, leather, vanilla and tomato along with raspberry. The palate is firm, healthy and dry, with tea, baked berry, dill and cinnamon flavors. Aged six months in American oak, this is a textbook Rioja crianza that’s smooth, herbal and on the money.
Lightly spiced up front, with dry wood aromas, light cherry and floral hints. Feels juicy and tight, with basic red-plum flavors that transition quickly to spice and acidic crispness on a short finish.
