An old-school Rioja classic for lamb or rich stews. "Ripe cherry, vanilla and floral pastilles on the smoky, oak-spiced nose. Sweet and supple on the palate, offering pliant red fruit and spicecake flavors with suave mocha and vanilla bean nuances. Quite lively and fresh for a wine from a hot vintage, and showing no excess fat." Vinous 92

2003 vs 1970. Completely different wines from the same thread. Amazing experience at the winery.

Quite riper in this vintage, composed though with fresh/baked/dried red fruits, American oak and savory, spice elements.
