This is a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano from 35 year old vines which were aged 15 months in 80% new French Oak and 20% new American Oak with an additional 21 months in bottle before release. A medium garnet color with powerful aged aromas of brown sugar, tobacco, cedar wood, bing cherries, raspberry and a hint of vanilla. The wine is dry, medium heavy body, tart acidity, medium astringent tannins, and has a long finish. I got powerful flavors of stewed tomatoes, cherries, prunes, baking spice and dried meat on the palate. A complex well balanced Rioja from a great vintage which should have plenty of years of life left. Try with braised and roasted meats, especially roasted suckling pig and boar. 4/5
