Tasting Notes

This is a powerhouse, simply put. With the extra year in the bottle, though, it is also displaying its beautiful fruit, crisp, silky texture and lingering finish. The oak is a bit prominent, but it is already being pulled in. This shows fine potential now, well on its way to absorbing the tannins and oak. It seems like a different wine than now than when I first saw it. Its power also makes it a very different wine than the sexier Touriga red label also reviewed this issue, but they both have fine potential. Despite the power, you could approach this now with some air or decanting, but you will be better served giving it a few more years in the cellar.

TASTING NOTES

Medium-high depth, dark-cherry red with an intense garnet-red rim. Clean and bright. Intense aromas, typical of this Rioja Alavesa terroir, with notes of ripe berries (blackberries, blueberries and raspberry jam) against a background of spices, clove, aniseed, incense, tobacco, and mocha.
