This wine is an excellent example of the emerging "Rioja Mediterranea". The climate in eastern Rioja, with its drier character and abundant sun exposure, implies better maturations which result in more "mediterranean" wines, delivering more power and alcoholic degree and good volume in the mouth with soft and round tannins. To put it into a few words, a new Rioja taste for the modern consumer. With red ruby color of good intensity, it suprises in the nose for its ripe fruit with fine and discreet traces from its noble ageing. Very good presence and structure in the mouth, with good round tannins and long fruity finish.

Wine SpectatorA polished texture carries focused flavors of black cherry, licorice, forest floor and smoke in this balanced red. Light firm tannins and lively acidity provide support as this glides to the savory finish. Drink now through 2023. 20,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastLeathery, oaky berry aromas are baked and include a note of cinnamon. A stout, firm palate is framed by rough, edgy tannins. Spicy, herbal plum flavors feature more than enough oak, while this is drying and tannic on the finish.
