Wine Description

(From 2001 Vintage) Aromas of dried cherry and rose petals, flavors of dark berries and tobacco, ripe tannins and a long, inviting finish.

Winemaker's Notes

A current of barnyard earthiness runs through the fading sweet cherry and dried rose profile of this mature Tempranillo. Elegant and delicate, with a dry finish, this is a fine example of the stunning year that was 1982 in Rioja.
