The wine is made up of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha. Ruby coloured and perfumed with dark fruit, cinnamon, Christmas spice, figs and fresh espresso. The type of nose only the best aged Rioja can offer. The nose promises a lot, but the palate doesn't disappoint. Complex, dark berry compote and liquorice flavours dominate the initial first sip, followed by a lighter taste of freshly ground coffee, allspice and black cherry on the lengthy finish. The combination of spice and fruit give a delicate bittersweet finish that offers itself well to a slow cooked roast lamb or any barbequed meat. This wine will peak for the next 10-15 years, but can be enjoyed beyond 2030.
Reviews & Scores
Handsome magnums! Looks a little cloudy. Mid ruby. Absolutely classic mature rioja nose with a mixture of stewed strawberries and animal mulch (not quite manure!!). Manages to be both sweet and refreshing no excess of alcohol. Oak in retreat. A very clever purchase for holiday entertaining though some guests may be put off by the individuality of this wine. Very gentle finish. 13.5%
