Winemaker's Notes:

Garnet cherry, with darker hues. Creamy aromas, with sweet notes of strawberry, cream, milk and coffee. There are also some hints of violets, and elegant cedar and graphite for a harmonious balance. An intense wine, fresh and full of flavor, decidedly fresh and fruity, with quality tannin and bold acid fruits. Finally, this develops into toast, cream, caramel, coffee and milk.
My Notes:

About Bodegas Landaluce:

Building on decades of family wine-growing tradition, in 2000 Goyo L. Landaluce decided to embark on a new phase, founding Bodegas Landaluce to make his own wines. Bodegas Landaluce is located in Laguardia, at the heart of the Rioja Alavesa region; at the feet of the Sierra de Cantabria mountain range, on the road leading to the ancient settlement of La Hoya, in an area known as PiƱuelas.
