  • A bright and expressive example of Rioja, beginning with a vivid red colour with violet highlights. Aromas of red fruit and dark cherries meld with liquorice and a touch of vanilla. The palate is rich and full bodied with classic blackcurrant fruit and cherry cola fruit flavours balanced by earthy complexity and varietal dry, chalky tannins.

    It sees both French and American oak but its dry, savoury, nutty heart shines through. What a delicious drink. The lack of heat through the finish allows the flavour to flow out easily through the finish. Earth and iodine and nuts. It has an easy-going savouriness. Here’s a statement for you: it’s food-style wine that you actually want to drink a lot of (rather than just think you should).

    And the Spanish hits just keep on rolling! How do they do it?! 30 yo vines high in Rioja Alavesa, new American and French oak; my goodness, what wonders can be had under $20! Elegant, subtle, food-friendly, layered withred cherries, cherry kernel, vanilla, textural tannins and lovely sour acidity.

    Regan Drew (2009 Vintage) says:

    This is full of dark blueberries, smokey meats, varnished/rubbed new leather. A medium bodied, carefully oaked thing, there's bitter herbs, olives, licorice/cola and some lovely fruits all bounded up tight for the moment with youthful acidity & good tannins....There's some serious metrosexuality about this wine. Definitely a bloke, but had some good styling.
