A minor terpene note on the nose quickly blows off revealing a complex and compelling nose of roast tangerine, mineral, honeycomb, brushfire, and caramel corn, though more corn than caramel. The bright acids wash across the palate and lift the pink grapefruit, pomegranate and ranier cherry tones through to the rich, long finish with it's more citrus, orangy notes. Wonderfully evolved but still amazingly youthful; Drink 2009-2020 93pts

I first had this wine paired with exquisite sushi. After some decanting, this paired like MAGIC. strong berry notes but a mild finish. I've been hooked on riojas since (although much younger ones).

    The color of this wine is telling that it's had a more than a few years of age. The palate though is stunningly lively with ripe berries, blood orange aromas and an amazing backbone of minerals and tannin. Earthy, sanguine and a wine of utter sophistication.
