This wine is an excellent example of the emerging "Rioja Mediterranea". The climate in eastern Rioja, with its drier character and abundant sun exposure, implies better maturations which result in more "mediterranean" wines, delivering more power and alcoholic degree and good volume in the mouth with soft and round tannins. To put it into a few words, a new Rioja taste for the modern consumer. With red ruby color of good intensity, it suprises in the nose for its ripe fruit with fine and discreet traces from its noble ageing. Very good presence and structure in the mouth, with good round tannins and long fruity finish.
Dark garnet. Primary, oak-tinged cherry and red currant aromas and flavors show good energy and subtle licorice and spice nuances. In a taut, youthful style, showing good depth and a sweetening touch of coconut on the nicely persistent finish, which echoes the spicy note.
Ripe cherry and red plum flavors are edged with cocoa, cola and loamy earth details in this plush, fresh red, which shows good harmony and energy. Drink now through 2026. 20,000 cases made, 5,000 cases imported.
