Earthy & Spicy
Smells like a treasure-chest full of sweet dried fruits, tobacco, & leather that was buried for years. Great tertiary notes that can only be the result of age coupled with wonderful integration of the oak. Not the freshest 'fruit-bomb' oriented wine, but a great bargain for those who seek a prominent example of age-worthy, complex, well poised and postured tempranillo.
Big & Bold
In two words - "Absolutely fantastic"!!! A Bargain at only $44. A true Rioja, with beautiful oak tones. Awesome !
