No American oak! Full, resolved. Threw a lot of sediment.

The oak was too much right now. Came off really funky in a bad way.

Cocoa powder, thyme, dried cherries. Rich and herbaceous. Not syrupy; light bodied and incredibly complex.

A local wine store buy. It was sitting on the shelf, waiting to be adopted. Still a dark ruby to the rim. Cherry tobacco with subsiding vanilla on both the nose and palate. Other stewed red fruits with baking spices offers a whiff of cherry pie. Medium plus alcohol and body. Medium acidity. Tannins are still firm. With leather starting to peek its head out, I think this could be held for a few more years. 92+ points

What an awesome rioja from out grad year - and it practically took us back to Logrono to boot. Paired with spicy (as well as some super-traditional) gambas al ajillo, and stood up well to both. I would say legitimately one of the better wines I’ve had in a long time, if not ever. Would absolutely recommend, esp. if you have a more French cote du Rhône or Oregon pinot palate.
