A baby. It started kicking and screaming 30-40 minutes in. Plush structure with weighted tart fruit, fresh herb and fall spices. Healthy dose of earth and balanced oak influence. It's unfair to compare this to Burgundy in terms of length and complexity, which it matches without doubt, but deservedly should stand alone as a unique traditional voice in Rioja. And still yet it should be of the highest compliment.

Brilliant start to an evening with Scott and Melissa. Pale brick color, light to medium body. Orange zest and cigar box, noticeable oak but not off-putting or overdone. Classic rioja. Drinking beautifully now, no hurry but I can't imagine it getting any better either.

Excellent complexity with strong notes of forest floor, wet leaves, leather and dried red fruits with a nice long finish

Drinking this 1995 in 2016 and only a few days after drinking the 1991. A lovely blackcurrant nose and the wine is surprisingly still very dark red, exhibiting very little of the red brick colour around the edges that the 1991 did. Accordingly, the dark fruit taste still is somewhat tanninful - despite its age my feeling is this wine still needs a good few years more to soften and open up and I would choose the 1991 to drink now.
