Textbook oaky Rioja. Coconut, dill and vanilla, liquorice, ripe cherry, plum and leather. Prominent ripe tannin and cleansing acid. For 29 aud it’s a bargain.

A bit rough for the price, but eminently drinkable

In 1858, it was the first winery in Rioja to produce wines using the Bordeaux method. A blend of 90% Tempranillo & 10% Graciano & Mazuelo, classic blend. Powerhouse of aromas, berry, sweet spice and some citrus on the nose. Palate shows dark berry fruits, cacao, some smoky pepper with a savory character. Fine tannins, nice balance and good length ending with slight mineral, oak and earthy tones. Great value, short term aging potential. Consistent quality. Good value.

This is Rioja, it's not flashy it's what I think of though when I think of Rioja and it's well made, free of faults.
