Dense and a bit smoky on the nose. There’s a nice sense of aromatic restraint to his, showing great integration of the wood and more depth and richness to the fruit than many other examples of 2001 Rioja. On the palate this is supremely elegant and filled with raspberry and cherry skin fruit all framed by suggestions of toasty coconut, leather, and some peppery, floral nuance. It’s a wonderfully balanced wine already, totally classic and one that should age for a very long time indeed. the finish is long, nuanced and has a lovely sweet tart thing going before the wood pops on the finale. A must have wine. 94pts
