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.

Sweet red fruit evolves gradually, soft leathery mid-palate, fine acidity. Tobacco, cedar, spice notes in harmony. Superb.

This was, unsurprisingly, outstanding. Felt young but I would probably still be saying that in 20 years and damned if it isn't delicious now. Pale tawny garnet color, cherries, leather, earth, dried herbs, ethereal and balanced, you know the drill

Копченое и мясное, чудесный подлесок. Звонкая кислотность при умеренном теле. Финиш без границы.

What a gorgeous old world Rioja in an awesome year @ £75 that's drinking just perfectly in a Zalto Burg glass

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
