This took it's sweet time to open up, even from a high shoulder fill bottle. At first there was only VA and the nose was very attenuated but with time and air it gained a fine leather note and nuances of rosewood, tobacco/ pipe smoke, sour game and a great floral top note. In the mouth this is very acid driven but the red currant fruit and sour cherry fruit is zesty and fresh with competing notes of bitterness and sourness that recall pithy lime zest. Turning silky in the mouth with a gamy, savory edge emerging that leads to a moderately long finish. Great mature Rioja. 93pts
