Enchanting bouquet of violets, dusty sandal wood and a hint of spicy red fruit. The palate is elegant and soft, and has a clean linear acidity. It has a strong floral character with spicy red fruit and hints of cherry sherbet. It has supple tannins and a long earthy herbal finish.
A mix of a modern and traditional style Rioja from a great vintage. Aged in both French and American oak for 22 months, resulting in lifted aromas of black fruits, violet and vanilla with hints of sweet spices. A classy, dinner party wine.
