Harvest was undertaken with a spirit of optimism across the region. One Rioja Alta estate near to the winery was selected, where the grapes enjoyed the necessary character, personality and exceptional quality needed to make this wine.

Tasting note

COLOR: Intense. Medium-bodied ruby red. A small amount of colour precipitates due to its long bottle ageing.

AROMA Y GUSTO: aromatic intensity and a great deal of complexity. Upon first nosing it displays a torrent of spiced oak, liquorice sticks, black pepper and tobacco. These are followed by still powerful notes of very ripe black fruit and a light touch of pepper roasted in a wood oven. Its glycerine texture -both creamy and robust – envelopes the palate and transforms into silkiness and har-mony on its passage through the mouth. Very long on the finish, the aftertaste is a delight, regaling us with the flavours and aromas of a very special wine.

Food pairing

Red meats, game, Iberian cured meats and mature cheeses, among other things.
