"Dark cherry color with light hints of violet. The nose shows red fruit, such as raspberries and redcurrant that blend into buttery aromas, cocoa, minerals and toasted wood. The palate is dry, with loads of volume and a well balanced finish. Very marked and persistent tannins." —winemaker

Blend: 90% Temp­ranillo, 10­% Mazuelo
"Bright violet color. Smoke- and spice-accented red fruits, coconut and floral pastilles on the highly perfumed nose, with hints of cured tobacco and musky herbs adding complexity. Sweet and focused on the palate, offering sappy cherry and redcurrant flavors braced by a mineral undercurrent. The sappy, seamless, long finish features lingering red fruits and spices. This old-school Rioja was aged in second-use American oak barrels for 15 months. Drinking window: 2018 - 2023." —Josh Raynolds, Vinous
