Brand Baron de Ley
Lovely ruby-red with medium depth of colour and slight brick-red hues. Great aromatic intensity on the nose, with ripe fruit well integrated with the toasted oak and balsamic aromas from the cask. After a little while in the glass, these aromas evolve to produce traces of infusions, spices and tobacco. In the mouth, the attack is round and balanced, displaying silky tannins while still remaining fresh and lively. The aftertaste is long and lingering, recalling reminders of toasted wood and dried fruits.

Classic Rioja aromas of root beer, cedar, cigar box, olive and earthy baked-berry fruits open this gran reserva. A weighty palate is cut by acidity, while this offers flavors of baked cherry, cassis and spice. A rush of acidity lends length to a finish with tobacco, pepper and dried berry flavors. Drink through 2025.

This solid red is a bit lean but shows good density, with cherry, plum, leather and dried herbal flavors mingling over firm tannins, with balsamic acidity keeping it fresh. Drink now through 2024. 25,000 cases made.
