Wine Details





Wine Description

(From 2007 Vintage) Cherry and raspberry aromas lead the charge, but as it airs out it becomes more raisiny and jammy smelling. The flavors are solid but distant, with simple red fruit, oak and barrel notes setting the pace. Highly drinkable and easygoing but not complex or elevated.

    nose lept out of the glass on opening. prunes, plums and old wood. Complex on the palate with fully integrated tannins but still with intense black fruit on the mid palate. Deliciosa! especially with the Riojan speciality of lamb cooked in wood-burning oven.
