(2011 Vintage) Intense color, purple with opaque center. Ripe cherry and fresh roasted coffee, pralines and blackberry jelly, always black cherries and Artadi unmistakable elegance. Velvety palate with soft mild, profound, and much black fruit showing beguiling Tempranillo-melting hits a lot of promising reserves Rioja Fresh, sweetish extract and good supporting tannins to the brombeerige final.
International Wine CellarInky ruby. Intensely perfumed, sexy bouquet of dark berries, fresh flowers and smoky minerals. Tactile and deep, offering powerful blackberry and mulberry flavors, chewy tannins and very good back-end minerality. Picks up sweet mocha, bitter cherry skin and candied licorice on the long, sappy finish. This wine is showing a more serious personality than I've ever seen at this stage.
