Description

Shows that wonderful, classic old school Rioja nose of sweet cherries, cedar, beef blood and hints of dustiness. There's also a lactic note that blows off quickly. On the palate it's mature, but also sports some youthful qualities. The cherries initially have that dessicated quality to them that comes from age, but retains sweetness and are joined by earth, leather and spice flavors with worn wood. With air the cherry flavors really blossomed. Lovely sweetness throughout the mid-palate, though the finish does dry out a little. It's a little too butch to call it elegant, though it's certainly harmonious. Beautiful wine,
