4/5

- A superbly complex single estate Rioja aged for 2 years in oak. It delivers great concentration of fruit, a dusting of fragrant spice and real elegance on the finish.
- Red ruby, clean with medium colour intensity. A very fruity and intense nose with hints of strawberry, blueberry, vanilla and a balsamic finish. In the mouth it is round, velvety and mouth filling.
- Once the wine is bottled, it will rest a further year in bottle prior to being released.
- 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano, 5% Mazuelo and Garnacha.
