Baron de Ley Rioja Reserva 2017
|Brand||Baron de Ley|
A traditional and elegant style, combining notes of spice and earth with a ripe, juicy fruit profile. Shows finesse and complexity.
A firm and silky red with dark berries, blueberries and hints of cedar and walnuts. Medium body. Firm and chewy. Pretty finish.
Dark garnet to the eye, this wine has a nose of black plums and graphite with a touch of bell pepper. There is a good mix of fruit and savory notes, particularly flavors of cranberry, black cherry, white chocolate, roasted yellow pepper and thyme. Rigid tannins coat the tongue and gums and then recede as bright fruit returns on the finish.
Opaque ruby. Oak-tinged cherry and black raspberry scents are complemented by a smoky nuance and a hint of coconut. Seamless and fleshy on the palate, the 2017 Reserva offers juicy red and dark berry, bitter cherry and vanilla flavors that turn sweeter through the back half. It finishes supple and long, leaving suggestions of candied flowers and oak spice behind.
