Winemaker's Notes:

Garnet-cherry color with russet hues. Elegant and intense, hints of red berries and notes of licorice on this nose along with aromas from aging, such as spice, tobacco and vanilla. Smooth, rounded, fresh and well-balanced, this is a wine that epitomises the Rioja Alta.
My Notes:

About Bodegas Bilbainas:

Bodegas Bilbaínas specializes in making vintage wines, and is regarded as a leader when it comes to setting wine styles. Some of the winery's flagships are among the most famed and emblematic wines of the Rioja, foremost of which are Viña Pomal and La Vicalanda.

Changes have been introduced over the years, moving toward deeper-colored red wines, with more hints of fruit and new woody tones, shortening aging times and employing more concentrated juices. Bodegas Bilbaínas has always produced estate wines. This term is in popular use today among winemakers who seek typification and distinction in their wines.
