aN intense cherry-red with an orange rim. The bouquet is very intense with a classic Rioja bouquet – spicy, balsamic, cured leather, cocoa, tobacco and vanilla notes set against a background of candied fruit. Elegant on the palate, with good structure and balance, silky, creamy tannins and a vibrant acidity on the finish. Bold with complexity.
