94 / 100
"A classic and tightly knit Rioja with dried berry, spice and cedar character on the nose and palate. Medium body, very fine tannins and a flavorful finish. Acidity carries the wine and then the tannins. Gorgeous. Drink now."
WINE & SPIRITS
91 / 100
"There’s a velvety, red-fruited wine behind all the initial oak blackness, yielding notes of forest floor as the wine softens up with air. It remains tight in the middle, needing a grilled sirloin to bring out its complexity."
