(From 2006 Vintage) From the time when we were small children, we have always remembered that wise person who made us change our way of seeing things, of living our day-to-day lives. Brushstrokes—sometimes anonymous—that leave an indelible trace in our souls. A wise wine with all the knowledge and flavour of the Rioja Alta.
Ruby red. Smoky cherry and red berries on the nose, with complicating notes of tobacco, leather and cured meat. A bit rustic but offers sweet red fruit flavors and good back-end lift. The firm finish offers a lingering note of bitter cherry skin. This needs a hunk of lamb.
Awesome aroma. Like a sweet, light berry overtone. Very crisp and clean aroma. Taste is firm but has a soft plum like finish.
light to med body. Notes of vanilla oak with slight tannic astrjngency.
