Winemaker's Notes

Spicy, rich, tasty and complex Rioja Reserva from a great Spanish vintage! Attractive, deep garnet red color. Its intense bouquet combines notes of blackberries, sweet almonds, and vanilla spice with a slight depth of cocunut. Rich, full and fleshy in the mouth with delicious, well-integrated tannins. Full of aromas and flavors, this wine is powerful but elegant at the same time.
